Abstract:

Metal-glass fiber composites containing 0 to 50 vol.- glass fibers were produced of low melting metals Pb, Zn and Al metals and alloys and high melting stainless steels. The glass fibers used with the low melting metals were similar to commercial textile glass fibers. Fibers used with the stainless steels were experimental hightemperature-resistant glass and crystalline fibers. The low melting metal composites were produced by casting molten metal around both bare and metal-coated fibers and by powder metallurgy pressing the metal-coated fibers. The casting was accomplished both by pressure casting and by centrifugal casting. The high temperature metal composites were made by the powder metallurgical techniques of hot pressing or slip casting followed by sintering in a reducing atmosphere. The properties of greatest interest were stress-strain properties in tension and stress-rupture at room temperature and at elevated temperatures. Author
