Abstract

In this work, two copper metal matrix composites (MMCs) reinforced with 20 wt.% of Ti(C,N) or Ti2AlN particles were studied. The reinforcement particles were synthesized by flash sintering under 2 bar nitrogen atmosphere causing an SHS reaction ignited by electrical current. This reaction led to produce TiC0.7N0.3 solid solution for the MMC1 reinforcement and Ti2AlN, TiN, and Ti3Al titanium aluminide for the MMC2 reinforcement. Both MMCs were densified by liquid phase sintering. The structural characterization was performed by XRD analysis while the morphology and chemical element distribution of both MMCs were analyzed by SEM and EDS. The structure of the two MMCs was relatively dense and showed good wettability. The mechanical and tribological behavior of MMCs evaluated by nanoindentation and wear testing reveals that the addition of 20 wt.% of reinforcement considerably improves the properties of copper matrix. Indeed, the MMC1 proved to be 3 times harder and 10 times more wear-resistant than the MMC2 composite.
