Scientists created nanopowders for the synthesis of new aluminum alloys
The authors of the project say that using this technology, they produced special nanopowders to be used as modifying additives in the production of aluminum alloys. This method will significantly improve the operational properties of foundry products, and reduce the energy costs for its final processing.
Igor Karpov, head of the laboratories of the UNESCO Science and Education Center "New Materials and Technologies" of SibFU, says that aluminum and iron obtained using the technology can be widely used in engineering.
"The technology of processing aluminum with the use of nanopowders opens up the fundamentally new opportunities for the production of composite materials with improved operating characteristics," says Igor Karpov. "The main consumers of the developed technology are the enterprises of metallurgy and machinery, specializing in the production of cast products from aluminum alloys."
