Improvements of dry sliding wear behaviour and mechanical properties in 2014 Al alloy by age-hardening

In this study AA 2014 powder metal alloy was produced by using the vertical gas atomization method. In the post-production stage, by unidirectional pressure in the steel mould, the powders were converted into powder metal samples. The derived powder metal particles from the micro structural point were subjected to sintering process for 1 h at the temperature range of 550 and 620°C. Next, the samples were exposed to...
