Selective laser melting of Nano-TiN reinforced 17-4 PH stainless steel: Densification, microstructure and mechanical properties

2022-03-01
In this study, TiN-reinforced 17-4 PH stainless steel was produced by selective laser melting (SLM). It was aimed to utilize nano-sized TiN particles both as inoculants to obtain an equiaxed microstructure in as-built condition and as dislocation barriers to improve mechanical properties. SLM process parameters development was conducted for TiN-reinforced 17-4 PH stainless steel powders. Consistent with the literature, it was observed that SLM processing window shifts to higher energy densities with the addition of ceramic particles. Moreover, it was found that smaller point distance values favor continuous melt tracks and thus, higher densities. TiN-reinforced composites were seen to exhibit a very fine and equiaxed microstructure, effectively eliminating directional solidification and consequent anisotropy. Both strength and ductility in as-built condition increased significantly for the TiN-reinforced composites. Strength further increased after heat treatment with a compromise in ductility due to excessive hardening from both TiN particles and Cu-rich precipitates. Yet, TiN incorporation was found promising for high-temperature applications in the future, where standard 17-4 PH stainless steel fails due to precipitate coarsening.

Selective Laser Melting (SLM) is a metal additive manufacturing process used to produce complex-shaped parts by the fusion of metal powders by a laser heat source. SLM processing of metals offers various advantages such as freedom of design, part consolidation, fast prototyping, weight reduction etc. Stainless steels have been one of the first choices to be implemented in SLM processing. Among these, 17-4 PH stainless steel holds a sweet spot with its corrosion resistance, weldability and high strength at e...

This study has been carried out to optimise the silver (Ag) content of the coating synthesised on commercially pure titanium (Cp-Ti, Grade 4) for biomedical applications by micro-arc oxidation (MAO) process. The MAO process has been conducted in electrolytes containing silver acetate (AgC2H3O2) at different concentrations between 0 and 0.002 mol L-1. When compared to the base electrolyte, coatings synthesised in >= 0.001 mol L-1 AgC2H3O2 added electrolytes exhibited an antibacterial efficiency of 99.8% agai...
Synthesis and characterization of aluminum alloy 7075 reinforced with silicon carbide particulates
Kalkanlı, Ali (2008-01-01)
In this study 7075 matrix alloy is chosen and SiC particles having average particle size of 29 mu m was incorporated into the alloy at the liquid state before vertical pressure casting. Four different additions of SiCp were made and the weight fractions used are 10%, 15%, 20% and 30%. Composites were processed by vertical pressure/squeeze casting machine developed at Middle East Technical University (METU) under 80 MPa pressure. The mold is specially designed to produce specimens for tensile and three point...
Use of boron oxide and boric acid to improve flame retardancy of an organophosphorus compound in neat and fiber reinforced polyamide-6
POLAT, Osman; Kaynak, Cevdet (2016-09-01)
The aim of this study was to investigate the usability of boron oxide and boric acid to enhance flame retardancy of (aluminum diethyl phosphinate)-type organophosphorus compound in polyamide-6 and its 15 wt% of short (glass fiber)-reinforced composite. Materials were compounded by melt-mixing method via a twin-screw extruder, and the specimens for testing and analyses were shaped by injection and compression-molding. For the neat polyamide-6 specimens, mass loss cone calorimetry analyses indicated that repl...
Microtensile Bond Strength of Self-Adhesive Resin-Based Dental Cement to Bleached Enamel
Tamam, Evsen; Keskin, Selda; Ucatasli, Mine Betuel (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
This study investigated the effectiveness of bleaching agents on the micro tensile bond strength (mu TBS) of self-adhesive luting cement and enamel. A total of 126 samples were prepared from the labial surfaces of permanent human maxillary central incisors and assigned into three groups with 42 samples each as: control, enamel bleached with 10% hydrogen peroxide (HP), and enamel bleached with 10% carbamide peroxide (CP). Rely X Unicem (R) (3 M, ESPE) was used as self-adhesive resin cement. The total testing...
