AbstractThe wettability of SiC by pure aluminium and aluminium alloys has been measured using the dip coverage method. It was found that alloying elements such as silicon, manganese, iron, and elements of the IVA, VA, and VI groups improved wettability by decreasing the incubation period and/or increasing the wetting rate. It was possible to analyse, the wetting process by assuming that the wetting rate was proportional to the amount of nuclei on the interface and to the unwetted area. The… Expand
Wetting of polycrystalline SiC by molten Al and Al−Si alloys
The wetting of α-SiC by molten Al and Al–Si alloys was investigated using a dispensed sessile drop method in a high vacuum. In the Al–SiC system, representative wetting stages were identified. TheExpand
Effect of Si on the Wettability of SiC/Al System
In this paper, Si was added to the Al alloy to research its effect on the wettability between SiC and Al at 1000°C. The results showed that the contact angle decreased with the increase of Si contentExpand
