Title: Microstructure and electrical resistivity features in Al-Al4C3 in-situ composite after attrition milling and double sequence of compaction and high temperature treatment
Author: A. T. OZDEMIR, B. BOSTAN

Abstract: An Al-based composite powder (Al-2%C) was prepared by mechanical alloying (MA). Mixed powders were cold compacted and annealed using two consecutive treatments. Microstructure progresses in both; the as-milled and the as-pressed and annealed conditions were characterized by X-ray diffractometry (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). During MA, C diffused into Al to form a solid solution. However, for MA, primary compaction and 1 hour sintering at 650 °C was insufficient to synthesize Al with C. Only after secondary pressing and long-time annealing at 550 °C, fine precipitates of Al4C3 were formed throughout the matrix. Increase in Al4C3 dispersion and stabilization of a dense dislocation substructure was the main source of systematic rise in both electric resistivity and hardness.
