Effect of Sintering Parameters on Microstructure and Properties of Mechanically Alloyed Copper-Tungsten Carbide Composite

Mahani Yusoff and Zuhailawati Hussain
Abstract—In this study, copper-tungsten carbide composite was produced by mechanical alloying and powder metallurgy. The effect sintering temperature and time (800°C to 1000°C and 1 to 3 h) on composite microstructure and properties were investigated. The results showed that WC is formed at lower temperature and the presence of WC favoured the enhancement of the properties of the composite. The increased both hardness and electrical conductivity has been observed with the increase sintering temperature.

Index Terms—Copper-based composite, mechanical alloying, sintering.
