Abstract:The wear behaviour and microstructure of aluminium and Al-12Si alloy (A413) matrix composites containing 1 and 5 vol.-%TiB2 particles have been investigated. The composites were prepared by an in situ reactive slag technique. The wear surfaces and wear products were studied after reciprocating and rolling - sliding tests. Wear resistance increased with increasing particle content, and the Al-12Si composites were more wear resistant than those with Al matrixes. The wear mechanisms are briefly discussed.
