 AlZnMg-합금의 용융산화에 의한 $Al_2O_3$-복합재료의 형성 김일수, 김상호1, 강정윤1 동의대학교 재료공학과1부산대학교 금속공학과 Formation of $Al_2O_3$-Composites by the Melt Oxidation of an AlZnMg-alloy ABSTRACT The initiation and growth of $alpha$-Al2O3/metal composites by the directed oxidation of molten commercial AlZnMg-alloy at 1223-1423K were investigated. Spontaneous bulk growth did not occur on the alloy alone. but the uniform initiation and growth of the composite were obtained by putting a thin layer of SiO2 particles on the surface of the alloy. Without SiO2 the external surface of the oxide layer was convered by MgO and MgAl2O4. But with the SiO2 reaction initiate the porous ZnO layers were found on the growth surface. The higher process temperature yielded a lower metal content. The oxidation product of $alpha$-Al2O3 was found to be oriented with c-axis parallel to th growth direction. The growth rates increased with temperature and the apparent activation energy was 111.8 kJ/mol. Key words: AlZnMg-alloy, DIMOX process, $Al_2O_3$- composites, $SiO_2$ reaction initiate
