Aluminium is preferred as a matrix material in MMCs because of its low density, easy fabricability
and good engineering properties.
The candidate material shall normally be investigated for more details in terms of cost, performance, fabricability
, availability and any requirements of additional testing in the detail engineering stage.
Custom 465 stainless is a premium quality, high strength, martensitic, age-hardenable stainless alloy designed for improved notch tensile strength, fracture toughness and fabricability
PLA has attractive properties such as high strength, thermo-plasticity, and fabricability
(l) and in a suitable disposal site will degrade to natural, harmless products, rendering it biodegradable and bioenvironmentally compatible.
