Summary

In this paper, we report on the influence of alloy composition and powder tailoring on sintering behaviour for this alloy system. The research approach and methodology are based on the derivation of alloy compositions from thermodynamic calculations (using Thermo-Calc®) followed by powder tailoring and sintering experiments with loose powder mixes. The base powder is wateratomised iron powder and the liquid forming additives are either agglomerated Fe3P/C powder or pre-alloyed Fe-P-C powder. Evaluation of the powder tailoring and sintering experiments is done by means of common tools for materials characterisation (OM, SEM, XRD, density measurements).
