Abrasive Wear on Heat-Treated Recycling Aluminium AA6061 of Various Reinforcement Materials through Powder Metallurgical Process


Article Preview

The present study is aimed at investigating wear resistance of the heat treated of recycled aluminium type AA6061 for various reinforced methods (heat treatment reinforced by graphite and silica) using pin on disc method. In the study, weight loss value of the recycled chip of AA6061 was observed. Eight specimens were taken for the wear test. The results showed that the wear resistance increased for specimens treated by heat treatment. This increase in wear resistance is value of micro hardness which increased with the increase of the percentage of silica reinforcement. Thus, the weight loss decreased and the volume loss also decreased.
