Sintering and characterization of SiC reinforced Ni powders in microwave furnace
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, SiC reinforced nickel matrix composites, microwave at different temperatures It is produced by sintering in oven. Nickel deposition on SiC powders was achieved by using electroless nickel plating technique. It is sintered at temperatures between 500°C, 600 °C, 700°C, 800°C and 900°C under Ar atmosphere. XRD, SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope), pressure test and hardness measurements were used to characterize the properties of sintered samples in microwave furnace. The experimental results, maximum compressive strength (σmax) and hardness (HV) were carried out at 800 °C. Microwave sintering of Ni-coated SiC powders without electric current can be a promising technique for producing ceramic-reinforced nickel composites.
