Ghanaraja S. | Srinivasa M R | Anil Kumar S V | Ganapathy Bawge


Abstract: Metal Matrix composites (MMCs) represent a new generation of engineering materials in which a strong ceramic reinforcement is incorporated into a metal matrix to improve its properties including specific strength, specific stiffness, wear resistance, corrosion resistance and elastic modulus. Thus, they have significant scientific, technological and commercial importance. Therefore, the development of aluminium matrix composites is receiving considerable emphasis in meeting the requirements of various industries. Incorporation of hard second phase particles in the alloy matrices to produce MMCs has also been reported to be more beneficial and economical due to its high specific strength and corrosion resistance properties. In the present investigation is to reinforce Al1100-Mg alloy with different wt. % of MnO2 (1, 3, 6, 9 and 12) was added by melt stirring method. Micro structural studies using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Mechanical properties have been investigated for cast base alloy and composites.
