Abstract

The effect produced by the time of milling the aluminum Al–12Si alloy powder in a ball mill in an air atmosphere on the macrostructural characteristics of aluminum foam was studied. The milling time was from 5 to 20 min at a speed of 300 rpm and a ball to powder mass ratio of 8 : 1. The treated matrix alloy powder was mixed with 1 wt % of TiH2, thereupon compact cylindrical specimens were manufactured by hot pressing at a temperature of 400°C. The foaming of specimens was performed in steel die at a temperature of 800°C. The results demonstrated that an increase in the time of milling the powder of aluminum matrix alloy to 15 min had a positive effect on the process of foaming due to a growth in the oxidation level as exhibited by a decrease in the size of formed pores and the density of aluminum foam specimens. However, a further increase in the milling time, at which powder particles coarsened as a result of cold welding, led to the degradation of the macrostructural characteristics of a foam specimen.
