Improving Magnesium's Wear Resistance-A Composite Approach 850421

The wear resistance of magnesium alloys has been significantly improved by the incorporation of hard ceramic particles to produce a composite. These composites can be processed by standard casting techniques, specifically die-casting. This paper discusses testing techniques for measuring the effect of the ceramic particulates on the composite's mechanical properties. Prototype part testing is also discussed.
