5] increased the tensile strength 70% higher than that of the parent metal in Al-TiB2 composite fabricated by FSP.
The round shape virtually eliminates any risk of weld crack propagating into the parent metal.
Purchasing pre-alloyed ingot stock with the percent reinforcement desired and metallurgical bond between the parent metal and particles is recommended.
Heat treatment of pipe welds is necessary to match the properties of the pipe parent metal and the weld.
The installed system also utilises sophisticated software to facilitate stitching of multiple images, accommodating the microscopic assessments of complete welds, heat affected zones and parent metal.
For example, in 6XXX series, the welding heat can reduce the strength of the parent metal by half.
Because the mold plates are bonded using a special-built vacuum hot press that applies the tonnage needed to bring the parent metal atoms together during the joining operation, the ultra-thin (0.
Wettability is given by the wetting angle [alpha], which is included by the tangent to brazing alloy surface and parent metal surface.
