HEAT TREATMENT OF ALUMINIUM MATRIX COMPOSITE (AMC) REINFORCEMENT ORGANOCLAY FOR AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATION

Yulius Eka Agung

Abstract


Aluminum Matrix Composites (AMC) reinforced montmorillonite (MMT) was performed using cationic surfactant , Artificial Aging and stir casting method. The content of MMT as a filler is 3%wt. Characterization were performed using Xray Difractometer, ultrasonic testing, SEM, and Hardness Vickers. The results show increase in crystallographic parameter, decrease in density, shiffting in XRD pattern and increase in hardness.

Keywords: metal, composite, matrix, aluminum, AMC, MMC, organoclay, heat treatment MMT, artificial aging,stir casting, automotive
