dc.description.abstractCementite powder was prepared from elemental iron and graphite powder by mechanical alloying (MA) in a specially built dual-drive planetary mill. The phase evolution, particle-size distribution, and morphology of particles were studied during 40 hours grinding period. X-ray diffraction (XRD) shows formation of cementite and other iron carbides along with elemental iron after milling, whereas after annealing only cementite is present. Initially particle size increases with milling due to ductility of iron powder and then reduces with further milling. Al-cementite composite was synthesized by mixing cementite with Al powders, and then by hot pressing or cold compaction and sintering. XRD analysis of Al-Fe3C composite shows Fe3C, FeAl, Al, and other iron carbides along with Al4C3 after sintering. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) micrograph of hot-pressed samples shows excellent compatibilility between Al matrix and cementite particles.en
