Optimisation of vacuum plasma spraying for composite production

Abstract:

The porosity and surface roughness of plasma sprayed composite monotapes are important factors controlling final composite quality in the manufacture of metal matrix composites by plasma spraying. In order to minimise porosity and surface roughness, the effects of vacuum plasma spray parameters on the porosity and the surface roughness of a Al-12wt%Si monolithic alloy have been evaluated by an experimental design method. The results showed that powder size, hydrogen gas flow rate, and powder ...
