The application of the Lanxide™ ceramic matrix composite processing technology to the nitridation of aluminum alloys has been studied. The process involves the directed nitridation reaction of a molten aluminum alloy in a nitrogen-containing atmosphere to yield an AlN/Al matrix material. The nitridation reaction can be directed through inert ceramic filler materials to produce a wide uariety of composites. By changing the reaction conditions, the progress of the reaction can be altered to tailor the microstruc-tures and physical properties of the resulting composites. Process information and initial composite property data are presented.
