Title: Degassing of Nanostructured Composite Powders Utilizing Unique, Low-Cost Heating Method
Agency: DOD
Contract: W911QX-11-C-0078
Award Amount: $99,557.00
 

Abstract:

Applied Colloids proposes the use of a unique heating method to degass cryomilled powders for use in Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs). This method is low-cost and scaleable to production quantities. Phase I of this program will degass nanostructured aluminum-boron carbide powders at the rate of 20 pounds per eight hours. Cryomilled powders will be supplied by Bepex International, a company familiar with cryomilling and the equipment to perform it. Phase II will consist of scaling up the degassing process to a rate capable of supplying 200 pounds of degassed material in twenty four hours.
