A Comparative Corrosion Studies of Aluminum Metal Matrix Composites Reinforced with nano (Al2O3 and SiC) Particles In Fao Water

Abstract

In the present investigation, the static electrochemical corrosion behavior of nano (Al2O3)P and nano (SiC)P based aluminum in Fao water was compared. The nanocomposites were fabrication using liquid metallurgy technique. The effect of nanoparticulates weight percentage (5%, 15% and 25%) on the corrosion was studied. The results showed that the Al reinforced with nano (Al2O3) composites exhibited lower corrosion rates that the Al reinforced with nano (SiC)Pcomposites.The corrosion rate was found to be increased by increasing of the weight percentage of the nanoparticles more than 5% nano (Al2O3)P composites exhibited the highest corrosion resistance among all the investigated nanocomposites.
