Experimental Study on Aluminium Based Alloys with Dispersed Intermetallic Compound (Al2CuMg) for Industrial Applications

Rakesh Kumar and Varinder Sahni
Abstract—The intermetallic compound (Al2CuMg) has been prepared with aluminium, copper and magnesium metals taken by their atomic weights. The TIG welding heating source at the desired temperature is used to melt the materials and stirring manually for five minutes. The results have been analysed using techniques of XRD and obtained 55.5% of Al2CuMg intermetallic compound and by XRF obtained 44.87% Al2O3, 35.21% CuO and 19.24% MgO. The intermetallic compound has been further synthesized by 5 wt% proportions mixed with aluminium metal and casted sample heat treated at 140 oC for five hours to enhance material properties. The tensile and hardness test were performed on the new material which has yielded high end values of the aluminium alloy.

Index Terms—Aluminium alloys, intermetallic compound, inert space.
