When an aluminum bath is held in molten state over a period of time, as in the case of this metalcasting facility, the titanium boron can settle out and drop to the bottom of the melt, reducing its effectiveness for nucleating grain growth.
Examples include the study of the kinetics of grain growth in nanocrystalline Fe, given above [17,18], the characterization of stacking faults in the magnetoresistive layered perovskite [La.
From the obtained results follows that combining the synthesis of AlN with mixing sintering additives in thermal nitrogen plasma ensures preparation of nanosized particulate composites with good sinterability in the SPS process despite the formation of the secondary phases, but it is necessary to eliminate grain growth by minimizing the content of additives and destroying aggregates of the particles.
