ABSTRACT

In this investigation, an attempt has been made to develop Al6061-Frit particulate metal matrix composites through stir casting technique using metal molds and to study the corrosion behaviour. Pre heated frit particles were added to matrix as reinforcement. Al6061 containing 2 wt% to 8 wt % in steps of 2 wt % of frit particulate composites were prepared. Corrosion tests were conducted by using Potentiostat model SEP238C where 3.5% NaCl solution was used as corrodent. The corrosion rate of metal matrix composites was lower than that of matrix material Al6061 under the corrosive atmosphere for both un-heat treated and heat treated conditions.
