Influence of AlN Nanoparticle Addition on Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Extruded Pure Magnesium and an Aluminum-Free Mg-Zn-Y Alloy release_bhokv3xcxrbe3kjf7r4heya3xe

by Danai Giannopoulou, Hajo Dieringa, Jan Bohlen


A pure Mg and a ZW0303 alloy metal matrix nanocomposite reinforced with AlN nanoparticles were prepared assisted by mechanical stirring and sonication for deagglomeration of particles. The produced nanocomposites were investigated to determine the influence of the AlN nanoparticles during indirect extrusion on the microstructure and texture development, as well as the resulting hardness and mechanical properties. For pure Mg, grain refinement and hardness increase due to the addition of AlN were revealed in the as-cast and the extruded condition. For ZW0303, the same was found for the as-cast condition. However, contamination of the alloy with Al significantly changes the recrystallization behavior during extrusion. This is directly related to the removal of solute Y due to the formation of intermetallic particles. Particle and grain size effects were distinguished for this alloy.
