Abstract

Interfacial reactions in the squeeze-cast SAE 329 Al alloy reinforced with SAFFIL and carbon fibers were investigated using scanning and transmission electron microscopy and secondary ion mass spectroscopy. The SiO2 layer added as a binder for the preform of SAFFIL fiber appeared to prevent excessive reaction between the fiber and the molten Al alloy during casting. In the as-cast composite, the reaction between the SiO2 layer and the Al alloy is considered to produce MgO crystals in the vicinity of SAFFIL fiber. With subsequent heat treatment of the composite to the T6 condition, small crystals of MgO and MgAl2O4 were found to form at the surface of SAFFIL fiber as a result of interfacial reaction between the SiO2 layer and the Al alloy. Even at the T6 condition, significant reactions between the Al alloy and SAFFIL fiber itself were not observed, indicating the effective role of the binder layer in suppressing the degradation of SAFFIL fiber by reaction with the Al alloy.
