Influence of Nanocrystalline Structure on Wear and Corrosion Behavior of Al-SiCP Composite
Abstract: Functionally graded (FG) Al-SiCP composites fabricated via centrifugal casting are widely used in automobile components particularly a brake rotor disc be-cause of its high SiC fraction at the outer periphery. However, when operated in corrosive environment like road deicing salts the disc is highly sensitive to the corrosion due to high SiC fraction. But, the nanocrystalline (NC) structured surfaces synthesized by severe plastic deformation (SPD) method have excel-lent wear and corrosion resistance at the surface. Therefore, shot peening (SP) as a SPD method conducted on one side of the stir casted FG Al composite having 10 wt% SiCP constant reinforcement in order to create NC structured surface. The SP treatment continued for 70 s and 140 s durations. Thereafter, the surface characteristics of the composite before and after SP were estimated by XRD and then the composites were tested by wear and corrosion tests. The results revealed that the SP for 140 s duration favors the induction of hardened layer, higher grain refinement (NC structure) and dislocation density which promotes the occurrence of high surface hardness, thus significantly improving its wear properties. However, higher dislocation density resulted from longer duration shown deterioration to the corrosion resistance. Whereas, the attained degree of NC structure is more pronounced over dislocation density resulted after 70 s SP duration, thereby composite showed excellent corrosion re-sistance. Thus, the composite with 70 s duration possessed excellent corrosion and relatively good wear properties too.

1. Introduction

Aluminum metal matrix composites (AMMCs) offer superior benefits over an aluminum base matrix [1]. Because of their improved strength, stiffness and high wear resistance AMMCs are widely used in the structural [2] [3], automotive [4] [5] and marine applications [6]. As silicon carbide particles (SiCP) resides in the composites exhibit wear resistance and it increases as increasing SiCP fraction.

Therefore, brake rotor disc (BRD) of an automobile made by Al-SiCP AMMC needs to possess high wear resistance at the outer periphery and good toughness at the inner core. To satisfy this requirement, the BRD can be fabricated by centrifugal casting, then BRD will attain high SiCP fraction at outer periphery and decrease its fraction towards inner core by the centrifugal force [7]. But, when the BRD is in contact with road deicing salts, the presence of SiCP shows proneness to the corrosion by disrupting the formation of passive layer [8], and leads to the premature failure [9]. Moreover, corrosion intensity will increase with increase of SiCP fraction [8] and hence the BRD fabricated via centrifugal casting exhibiting high wear resistance but poor corrosion resistance.

To avert the corrosion proneness, a functionally graded (FG) A356-SiCP BRD composite fabricated via centrifugal casting and was heat treated with 1) solution annealing and 2) solution annealing + aging by Maimunnisa et al. [7]. After heat treatments, the samples were subjected to corrosion tests in 3.5 wt% NaCl solution. After correlating the results with heat treatments, they have reported that the former treatment had shown the highest corrosion resistance than later treatment. Because aging of the solutionized composite by later treatment caused the formation of Mg2Si phase and weaken the corrosion resistance. Moreover, another article [10] declares that the heat treatments such as 1) solution treatment and 2) quenching + artificial aging have not affected the corrosion resistance of FG Al-SiCP composite fabricated via centrifugal casting.

From the above reports, it can conclude that the heat treatments are not properly showing their effect on corrosion behavior of FG Al-SiCP composite fabricated via centrifugal casting. Besides, the centrifugally cast FG Al-SiCP composite with high reinforcement fraction had also lost its wear resistance observed from water-lubricated pin-on-disc wear tests by Velhinho et al. [4]. Authors also explained that during wear tests in presence of water lubrication, the water acts as a carrier agent and transfers material from the pin samples. Also it pull-out SiCP from the region containing high SiC fraction. Water reacts at Al-SiC interface particularly with Al matrix and provokes to the chemically induced fracture [11].

Recently, as wear and corrosion properties are being related to the material surface, surface NC structure developed by severe plastic deformation (SPD) was proposed to be convenient alternative to bypass these difficulties. The synthesized bulk NC component increases wear resistance [12], corrosion resistance [13], and harvesting superior benefits in material science [14].

Among the SPD techniques shot peening (SP) is a very familiar method and able to introduce NC layers with excellent features [15]. Properties by SP are far better when compared with heat treatments [16] and SP is widely used in industries due to its flexibility to treat component of any shape, high productivity [15] and low cost [17] [18]. The AMMCs already yielded good results by SP but not studied wear and corrosion properties [19] [20].

Therefore, this work is aimed to study the wear and corrosion behavior of FG Al-SiCP (10 wt%) composite by SP. In this regard, the effect of NC structure, dislocation density and exposure time by SP on microhardness, wear resistance, wear rate, friction coefficient, corrosion resistance and corrosion rate will be studied.

2. Experimentation

2.1. Selection of Materials and Composite Fabrication

The matrix alloy used in this work was Aluminum alloy 6061 as a substitute to aluminum alloy A356 [21], a constant weight fraction 10 wt% SiC particles as reinforcement with size range from 40 to 55 µm selected to fabricate the composite. The elemental composition of AA6061 matrix alloy was determined by optical emission spectroscopy and is presented in Table 1. Then the composite after fabricating via stir casting turned into functionally graded metal matrix composite (FG AA6061-SiCP) [22]. After casting, the composite density was found to be 2.78 g/cm3.

2.2. Shot Peening (SP) and Surface Characterization

The real setup and working schematic of SP are shown in Figure 1. The composite samples are treated by SP for 70 and 140 s exposure time on one side of the surface. Here, the un-shot peened specimens are referred to as un-SP, whereas shot peened specimens for 70 s and 140 s referred as SP70 and SP140 respectively. Then, SP involves the bombardment of the surface by small spherical shots.

Table 1. The elemental composition of AA6061 aluminum alloy.

When the shots are coming out of the nozzle with high pressure energy, strikes over the target surface as shown in Figure 1 and this process usually takes place inside the SP chamber. The shot media used in this work are cast steel (S-230) according to standard SAE-AMS-2431/1 [23]. The diameter of shots used in this work ranging from 0.45 to 0.6 mm and having hardness 45 - 52 HRC [24]. The other SP parameters selected in this work such as air pressure, nozzle distance, and impact angle are similar to the earlier work [25].

The phases formed on the surface of specimens were characterized using a Bruker D8 Advance X-ray Diffractometer with Cu-Kα radiation and wave length of 1.54 Å. The phase and structure of the specimens were estimated by XRD profiles from 30˚ to 80˚ of 2θ variation. The phase analysis, full width at half maximum (FWHM), average grain size, dislocation density and lattice parameter were determined from this characterization.

2.3. Experimental Procedure

Microhardness was measured on both surface and cross-section of the specimens using a Vickers microhardness tester (Wilson Wolpert 401-MVD) as per the ASTM: E-92, under an applied load of 100 gf with dwelling time of 10 s. The measurement was done for three times on each specimen and the average value was reported. For hardness profile from surface to interior at a series of planned points with 10 µm interval followed and measured diagonally to overcome the effect of plastic deformation on the data reliability.

Dry sliding wear tests were conducted as per ASTM: G-99, in an ambient temperature using pin-on-disc apparatus using Ducom (TR20). The specimens were subjected to sliding under a load of 15 N against the rotating stainless steel (SS304) disc which had a hardness of 50 HRC. The disc was rotating with a linear velocity of 1.2 m/s up to a sliding distance of 500 m.

Corrosion tests were conducted on the specimens surface in 3.5 wt% NaCl (PH 7.0) solution for an interval of 24 hours. Before immersion in the NaCl solution, each specimen was masked on all the sides except the surface to be tested and it was cleaned with acetone. Moreover, specimens after being taken from NaCl solution rinsed with distilled water and dried in hot air oven for 30 min at 70˚C. The specimens before and after the tests were weighed individually using digital balance which is mandatory. The corrosion rate of specimens was determined and expressed by millimeter per year (mm/year) using weight loss method as per ASTM: G-31 [2] [26].

Finally, the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDAX) were utilized to examine topography and elemental composition respectively after wear and corrosion tests.

3. Results and Discussion

3.1. X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) Analysis

Figure 2 shows four peaks of the XRD patterns occurred on surface of the

specimens. Moreover, the magnified view at 2θ = 79˚ with peak Al{311} is very discernible for the broadening of diffraction peaks by SP treatment. The SP for 140 s time is more tenacious and it demonstrates that the broadening of peak increases as increasing the exposure time. Moreover, the peak broadening is an indication to the grain refinement [19] and it contributes to develop NC structure and increased dislocation density. Besides, the shifting of peak towards lower side of diffraction angle is also observed from magnified view. It is a sign to understand that the SP can increase the atomic level lattice strain which helps in improving several surface characteristics [13]. The surface characteristics such as FWHM, average grain size, dislocation density and lattice parameter were calculated according to referenced article [13] using X pert high score software and are shown in Table 2.

3.2. Microhardness

The improvement in hardness of peened specimens is mainly attributed to the presence of refined grains and high value dislocation densities [27] [28]. The microhardness of un-SP composite is only 89 VHN seen from Figure 3(a), which is similar to the stir casted AA6061composite with 10 Vol% fraction of SiC particles [5]. Hence, SP is considered to be an important work-hardening process and induces high hardness as a consequence of grain refinement and high dislocation densities on the metallic surfaces [27] [29]. Moreover, the improvement in work hardened layer in this study correlated with FWHM values of Table 2 as they are having direct proportionality to each other [30].

On the other hand, the trend of hardness profile on the cross-section of the specimens shown in Figure 3(b) helps to assess the thickness of the plastically deformed layer. Therefore, the shot peened specimens have hardened layer up to 40 - 50 µm depth. But SP140 specimen had shown substantial improvement beyond the 50 µm depth. This is attributed to the improvement in grain refinement, high dislocation density and FWHM broadening after 140 s SP duration.

Table 2. Surface characteristics of the specimens by XRD.

3.3. Wear Behavior

Based on the above microhardness study the wear behavior of composite before and after SP had studied by testing on pin-on-disc apparatus. In this regard, the trend of coefficient of friction (COF) curves and their average values over the sliding distance of 500 m are shown in Figure 4(a) and Figure 4(b). It is noted that the specimens after SP have possessed low COF values. It is due to work-hardening layer induced in the near surface of specimens after SP and their improved surface characteristics. SP140 specimen has the lowest COF as compared with other specimens. The enhancement in the surface integrity and microstructure by SP contributed to yield low COF value [31]. Besides, Figure 4(c) is more discernible that the treated composites are having the lowest wear rate which is attributed essentially to the NC structure and dislocation density improved by virtue of SP.

On the other hand, Figure 5 demonstrates the topography of worn surfaces under a constant load of 15 N. The un-SP specimen had transferred more material during wear test and the nature of wear is adhesive with deep groves and ploughing as seen from Figure 5(a). Because of the coarse grains and low hardness on the surface of specimen without SP could not prevent the material loss form the surface. Whereas, SP70 specimen had shown minimum material loss with mixed adhesive and mild abrasive wear (Figure 5(b)) as a result of improved surface properties and microhardness by SP. In addition, as extension of SP duration the SP140 specimen has received more ability to mitigate loss of material from its surface during wear test. And also Figure 5(c) confirmed the transformation of wear mechanism into abrasive nature by virtue of its high surface hardness and dislocation density as a consequence of 140 s SP duration.

3.4. Corrosion Behavior

The corrosion behavior of all the specimens is evaluated after exposed for 24 hours in 3.5 wt% NaCl solution and the corrosion rate of the specimens is presented in Figure 6. The shot peened specimens showed lower corrosion rate and higher corrosion resistance compared to the untreated specimen. Since NC structure developed by SP acts as barrier layer to corrosion and disrupts the ion release. The surface characteristics resulted after 70 s SP duration have provoked to improve corrosion properties and shown favor to increase the highest corrosion resistance in this study. The combined surface characteristics such as NC structure and dislocation density in SP70 had governed the corrosion behavior of the composite to yield the best results.

Whereas, the corrosion rate of SP140 specimen is higher when compared to SP70. In general, the corrosion resistance increases with SP exposure time [32]. But increasing SP time for 140 s in this study had shown lower corrosion resistance compared to 70 s SP time. Since, increasing dislocation density after longer SP duration is considered to be detrimental effect on corrosion resistance [13]. Therefore, the dislocation density attained by 140 s SP duration may be more dominant than NC structure obtained. Finally, SP140 specimen has exhibited lower corrosion resistance compared to SP70 specimen due to the differences in their dislocation densities.

On the other hand, the results of SEM analysis after corrosion tests in 3.5% NaCl solution are presented in Figures 7(a)-(c). The corroded surface before SP is combined with more cracks and pits. The coarse grains over the surface of the specimen without SP caused severe attack by the corrosion. Whereas, the surface of composites after SP for 70 and 140 s duration consists of the type intergranular corrosion. But, the corroded surface of SP140 is more degraded compared to

Figure 6. Corrosion rate after static immersion in NaCl.

the SP70 specimen as a result of high dislocation density caused by the longer SP duration.

3.5. Elemental Study on Worn and Corroded Surfaces

The increase in O2 percent detected on the worn surfaces of EDAX study is an indication to prevent the material transfer and increment in wear resistance. The presence more O2 element observed on the surfaces of shot peened composites as seen in Figure 8(a). It helps to form oxide layer over the surface and strives to prevent material loss from the surface. Since, oxide layer formed on the surface of Al-SiC composite during the dry sliding wear tests is an indication to the protection of material loss [33]. But in the case of untreated composite seen in Figure 8(a) have consisted of only a low percent of O2, which could not prevent the loss of material and also shown highest wear rate.

Moreover, the result of EDAX test in Figure 8(b) reveals the presence of O2 in corroded surfaces too. The coarse grained surface of un-SP specimen disrupted the formation of passive layer and increased the corrosion rate due to oxygen deficiency. Because corrosion always occurs in the surface region of oxygen deficiency [34]. The NC structure developed by SP contributes to form thick passive layer [35] with presence of high oxygen content and improved corrosion resistance in SP70 and SP140 specimens. However, the NC structure of SP140 specimen had low oxygen content compared to SP70 due to the difference in dislocation density.

Therefore, the brake rotor disc (BRD) of an automobile manufactured with FG Al-SiCP composite via centrifugal casting had suffered due to corrosion attack even it had high wear resistance. The presence of high SiCP in the composite

is more sensitive to the corrosion and it is increased by increasing SiCP fraction at the outer surface after centrifugal casting. However, by conducting heat treatments, only few had improved corrosion resistance but some of the heat treatments were not. In order to bypass these difficulties the NC structured surface developed by SPD is the best alternative which increases both wear and corrosion resistance. Thus, a FG Al-SiCP (10 wt% SiCP) composite in this study was subjected to SP as one of the SPD treatment and continued for 70 and 140 s duration. Indeed, SP is more advantageous than few heat treatments by its low cost, flexible, time saving and promising technique to develop NC structure. After SP, the surface characteristics studied by XRD. Thereafter the surface characteristics have been correlated to the wear and corrosion properties of FG Al-SiCP composite.

4. Conclusions

Finally, the wear and corrosion behavior of the FG Al-SiCP composite before and after SP was studied with respect to the surface characteristics and the following conclusions can be drawn.

1) The NC structured layer on the surface of shot peened composites is developed successfully. The longer duration of SP promoted the composite surface in terms of highly refined grains, high dislocation density and peak broadening with shifting towards lower diffraction angle.

2) In the top surface NC structured layer, the composite microhardness is improved. It is a consequence of grain refinement and dislocation density increased by SP. And the hardened layer below the surface is increased as the result of longer SP duration.

3) The SP140 exhibited high wear resistance and low friction coefficient due to its grain refinement, high dislocation density and increased microhardness by longer SP duration. But, high dislocation density disrupted the passive layer formation and weakened the corrosion resistance with degraded surface after corrosion test.

4) Whereas, the SP70 with attained degree of NC structure and low dislocation density compared to SP140 composite have increased the corrosion resistance, and also exhibited a relatively good wear properties compared to un-SP composite by its improved surface characteristics after SP.

5) Thus, the wear resistance of the composite improved greatly with NC structure, high dislocation density and longer SP duration. Besides, the corrosion resistance of the composite governed by a combination of suitable SP duration, NC structure and low dislocation density.

6) Effect of SP is more pronounced while considering surface properties and mechanical properties among the treated composites as compared to un-SP composite even it is having same SiCP fraction. Moreover, compared to other surface modification techniques, SP is low cost, flexible for component of any geometry, time saving and promising technology for improving mechanical properties and surface characteristics.
