Summary

The composites on an aluminium alloys matrix feature an advantageous set of mechanical properties. There is a possibility of shaping their structure by selection of the size and volume fraction of reinforcing particles as well as a possibility of controlling their distribution in the castings produced by a centrifugal casting method. Some results of the research on tribological properties of composite castings with a layer distribution of particles obtained in the centrifugal casting show that the castings of this type can be used in practice, e.g. for sleeves and pistons. High abrasive wear and sliding abrasion resistance depends, however, on the size of the reinforcing particles.
