Aluminium 6061 Powder

BJT powders optimized for desktop metal solutions. You can improve the performance of your BJTs by using PTF-aluminium 6061 powder in desktop metal solutions.


When compared to standard PMC alloys, powder thixoformed (PTF) 6061 aluminum alloy powder have significant advantages. They are capable of rapidly solidifying complicated aluminum alloy components. They are also less expensive than powder metallurgy. They can also be used to create functionally graded structures.

The alloy PTF-6061 contains eutectic and secondary primary a phases. It has a tighter microstructure than the PMC-6061 alloy. The Thermo-Calc diagram can be used to identify these phases in the powder microstructure.

A comparison of a traditional permanent mold cast alloy and PTF-6061 alloy revealed that the PTF process was more effective in reducing porosities. However, the deposit's ultimate tensile strength was equally crucial to the tensile yield strength. This was owing mostly to the presence of secondary solidified structures.

The PTF approach was also successful in improving tensile strength and solid solution strengthening. However, the effect of solution temperature on tensile strength is not as clear. This discrepancy emphasizes the importance of a more precise understanding of the powders.

To reinforce the powder, the PTF process employs a matrix. As a result, the composite has a higher density and better densification. PTF techniques can also be used to create particle reinforced aluminum matrix composites with high strength. They have the potential to be a significant replacement for traditional PMC.

After three hours of solutionizing at 535oC, the PTF-6061 alloy had the best overall mechanical characteristics. The alloy has a porosity of 0.16%. The PTF alloy has lower solute atom concentrations than the PMC-6061 alloy. However, from 535oC to 585oC, the solute atom concentrations are still larger than in the PMC alloy.

Moreover, the PTF-6061 alloy exhibited superior tensile strengths at a solution temperature of 560oC. The eutectic phase was still present in the gas atomized powder, indicating that the microstructure of the powder still retained some of its characteristics after solution heat treatment. This was also shown in the form of an improved coating produced from the solution heat-treated powder. This coating showed a higher concentration of dislocations in the interfacial zone, facilitating particle-particle bonding.
