Abstract

In last two decades, researchers have tried to develop lighter components without sacrificing strength or stiffness using metallic composites. Among metallic composites low melting point matrix composites have the additional advantages of getting uniform distribution. Semi-solid forming method is adopted in industries for the production of metal matrix composites. Since it is an advantage compared to die casting, squeeze casting or forging. Researchers are observed well dispersed particles in metal matrix composites using semi-solid forming process. One disadvantage of low melting point metal casting is the oxidation of metal at higher temperature. This paper describes stir-casting method for production of high-density, low melting point metal matrix composites such as tin with graphite. The melting is performed in nitrogen gas environment to avoid oxidation. Paper presents low cost stir casting technique for metal matrix production. Micro structural examination and characteristic study of the metallic composites are discussed
