1 EFFECT OF COPPER ALLOY ADDITION METHOD ON THE DIMENSIONAL RESPONSE OF SINTERED FE-CU-C STEELS Michael L. Marucci and Francis G. Hanejko Hoeganaes Corporation Cinnaminson, NJ USA Abstract Fe-Cu-C is the most common alloy system used in press and sinter powder metallurgy. This system has many advantages including excellent mechanical properties, sinterability, and competitive cost. However, as end customers continue to require tighter dimensional control of finished parts this alloy is at a disadvantage due to its inherent dimensional variability. Changing the method of copper addition influences the dimensional stability of this system. This work studies the mechanical, dimensional, and microstructural differences of sintered Fe-Cu-C steels with atomized copper, diffusion alloyed Fe-Cu, and chemically bonded copper additions. Introduction Copper additions to iron powder were among the first additions to improve the strength of sintered steels. Additions of graphite to Fe-Cu sintered steels are also desirable because the carbon promotes the formation of a pearlitic microstructure, imparting additional strength and hardness to the steel. Unfortunately, these admixed elements result in dimensional growth upon sintering which can result in dimensional variation of the finished component. As dimensional precision requirements for PM components continue to become more demanding, alternate alloying methods need to be considered to reduce the inherent dimensional variation of Fe-Cu-C sintered steels. Elemental copper is advantageous due to its melting point at 1083 C (1981 F), which promotes sintering and enhances the strength of the steel. Despite the relatively low melting point of the copper, it does not fully diffuse within the iron at conventional sintering times and temperatures. This results in a copper gradient from the iron powder surface to the core. 1 Earlier work also has shown that the amount of carbon present within a compact changes the rate at which copper alloys with the steel matrix due to the change in the dihedrial angle of the molten phase. 2 Both effects result in dimensional growth after sintering. The dimensional growth is dependent on the chemical composition of the compact and is particularly sensitive at 2 w/o copper additions. 3 Unlike other PM material systems, FC-0208 type materials exhibit less dimensional growth as the sintered carbon increases, as seen in figure 1. Utilizing a 1 w/o copper

2 addition reduces the sensitivity of sintered carbon on dimensional variation. However, at this reduced copper addition level, the strength is below that of a standard FC-0208 material. Figure 1: Dimensional change of Fe-Cu-C steels (chart from Lindsley, et-al, ref 3) As a 2 w/o copper addition remains desirable for mechanical properties, every effort needs to be made to reduce the local variation of copper and graphite within the compact. The current work examines the effect of different copper addition methods on dimensional variation and also looks at the effects of bonding the admixed ingredients. The use of ANCORBOND or Fe-20Cu Distaloy is of particular interest because these methods limit the possibility of elemental powder segregation during premix handling, which could induce the dimensional variation detailed in figure 1. Experimental Procedure Table I outlines the materials used for this study, all prepared as 225 kg (500 lb.) premixes. All materials conform to FC The base steel powder used was Hoeganaes Ancorsteel 1000B, which is an unalloyed water atomized steel powder. All premixes were prepared with 0.80 w/o natural flake graphite. Three different types of copper additions were investigated. The Standard Atomized is water atomized copper powder having a D 90 of 84 μm and a D 50 of 39 μm. The Fine copper is a reduced copper powder having a D 90 of 17 μm and a D 50 of 10 μm. FD-20Cu is steel powder that is diffusion alloyed with 20 w/o copper powder. This alloy is produced by Hoeganaes. Figures 2-4 show SEM photomicrographs of each type of copper evaluated. The photomicrographs clearly show the differences in particle size and morphology. Different lubricant systems were also evaluated. The standard premix used admixed EBS for the lubricant. Hoeganaes ANCORBOND was also used in combination with the EBS to gauge the impact of bonding the mix ingredients on dimensional stability.

4 All premixes in Table I were compacted at room temperature. Green density and green strength were measured using the green strength samples (MPIF Std 15). Mechanical properties were determined using Transverse Rupture (MPIF Std 41), dog bone tensile (MPIF Std 09), and un-notched Charpy Impact (MPIF Std 40) samples, which were compacted from each mix over a range of compaction pressures. Sintering was conducted in a continuous belt furnace at 1120 C (2050 F) in an atmosphere of 90 v/o N v/o H 2. The test samples remained at sintering temperature for approximately 15 minutes. Conventional cooling was used. Selected samples were tested in the heat-treated condition. Heattreatment consisted of austenitizing at 871 C (1600 F) in an atmosphere of 25 v/o N v/o H 2 and quenching in agitated oil heated to 66 C (150 F). The quenched samples were subsequently tempered at 204 C (400 F) in 100 v/o N 2 for 1 hour. Results and Discussion The compressibility of the test alloys is shown in figure 5. The chart shows that the different copper addition types have a small effect on the compressibility. The densities achieved are within 0.04 g/cm 3 over the test range. The fine copper resulted in a slightly higher green density, most likely due to the better packing of the fine particles Compaction Pressure (tsi) Green Density (g/cm 3 ) Std Cu Mix Std Cu Bond Fine Cu Bond FD-20Cu Bond Figure 5: Compressibility of test alloys Compaction Pressure (MPa) The as-sintered and heat-treated mechanical properties of the test alloys are summarized in Tables II and III. At a given sintered density, the mechanical properties are largely within experimental error when comparing the different copper addition methods along with different mixing techniques. All properties meet or exceed MPIF Standard 35 for FC-0208.

The copper addition type does not influence the ultimate tensile strength. The quench and temper heat-treatment results in a 140 MPa (20,000 psi) increase in tensile strength over the range of densities evaluated.

The fatigue response is very similar for all copper addition types. Both the standard Cu and the FD-20Cu had a fatigue endurance limit (FEL) of 131 MPa (19.0 psi x 1000). The fine Cu version had a slightly lower FEL of 124 MPa (18.0 psi x 1000). This indicates that all copper addition types would be acceptable for use in the as-sintered state. Testing of heat-treated materials was not completed due to difficulty in gripping the dog-bone type samples. 345 Figure 7: As-Sintered axial fatigue comparison (R = -1).

7 Apparent hardness is highlighted in figure 8. Again, the copper addition type does not impact the hardness level achieved. Heat-treating results in a substantial increase in apparent hardness. For all materials at 6.95 g/cm 3, the hardness goes from 50 HRA (81 HRB) to 68 HRA (35 HRC). Apparent Hardness (HRA) Figure 8: Apparent hardness comparison Heat-Treated As-Sintered Sintered Density (g/cm 3 ) Std Cu Bond Fine Cu Bond FD-20Cu Bond Std Cu Mix Unlike the mechanical properties, the dimensional change is impacted by the copper addition technique. Figure 9a shows the dimensional change in the as-sintered condition. For all materials, the dimensional growth increases as density increases. Typically, dimensional change as close to 0.0% is desired for dimensional stability. The standard copper and the FD-20Cu had similar values and the fine copper addition produces the highest dimensional growth. It is hypothesized that the higher growth is caused by larger number of Fe-Cu interfaces within the compact. Upon melting, the copper diffuses along the grain boundaries causing swelling; the finer copper has more particles resulting in more interfaces and added swelling. The higher growth caused by the fine copper makes this powder type an undesirable copper addition method for the FC-0208 system. a.) 0.70 As-Sintered b.) 0.70 Heat-Treated Dimensional Change (%) Std Cu Mix Std Cu Bond Fine Cu Bond FD-20Cu Bond Sintered Density (g/cm 3 ) Figure 9: As-sintered and heat-treated dimensional change.

8 Heat-treatment results in a similar trend in dimensional response (figure 9b), however, the final dimensional growth is lower than in the as-sintered state. Typically, the transformation to a martensitic microstructure results in a positive size change. However, additional shrinkage occurs during the austenization/tempering of the steel, offsetting this effect. Again, the standard copper and the FD-20Cu have the lowest dimensional growth. Data from a separate study 5 show that when the carbon and copper content of the test alloys are moved over a range of values, the dimensional change varies, as shown in figure 10. Unlike the behavior shown in figure 1, the rate of change as a function of chemistry is almost the same for each alloying method and carbon content, but the relative dimensional growth is similar to what is found in the present study. This shows that the FD-20Cu could be used as an alternative to the standard Cu. a.) Dimensional Change (%) w/o Cu Graphite Addition (w/o) Std Cu Fine Cu FD-20Cu b.) Dimensional Change (%) w/o Graphite Cu Addition (w/o) Std Cu Fine Cu FD-20Cu Figure 10: As-sintered dimensional change as a function of carbon and copper addition. All samples compacted to 6.90 g/cm 3. The as-sintered and heat-treated microstructures for the standard Cu and FD-20Cu are compared in figures 11 and 12. As expected, both copper addition types produced a pearlitic as-sintered microstructure. The heat-treated microstructure consists of lath martensite with some areas of bainite. The FD-20Cu sample has a larger amount of bainite; this is most likely due to incomplete diffusion of copper in the iron particles. Moving from a pure copper particle to an Fe-Cu Distaloy has minimal effect on the finished microstructure.

Figure 12: FD-20Cu, a.) as-sintered and b.) heat-treated, 2% nital/4% picral etch To determine the relative dimensional stability of the test materials a prototype spur gear was produced and a measurement over wires (MOW) technique was used to determine dimensional variation. The geometry of the prototype gear is shown in Figure samples per material were compacted with a target density of 6.9 g/cm 3 on a 140 t Dorst press. All samples were sintered/heat-treated under the same conditions as listed above. MOW was conducted on 20 random gears from each test condition.

10 Table IV summarizes the MOW results. The data show, as predicted above, that gears in the as-sintered and heat-treated condition produced with fine Cu resulted in slightly larger dimensions. The scatter in the dimensional measurements for all materials falls within a tight range. However, the bonded version with the standard Cu results in a lower measured scatter than the premixed version. The standard Cu compared to the FD-20Cu shows mixed results and indicate that the dimensional scatter is similar under these test conditions. The fine Cu version resulted in the largest scatter of the group. Conclusions Table IV: Measurement Over Wires Evaluation As-Sintered Std Cu Premix Std Cu Bond Fine Cu Bond FD-20Cu Bond As-Sintered Average (mm) Standard Deviation Heat-Treated Average (mm) Standard Deviation Different types of copper additions are viable in FC-0208 alloys. The resulting mechanical properties in the as-sintered and heat-treated states are within measurement error for fine copper and FD-20Cu addition when compared to the standard Cu. The finished microstructure is minimally impacted by changing the copper addition type. The use of fine Cu in this alloy induces higher dimensional growth than other copper addition types. Standard Cu and FD-20Cu additions produce a similar dimensional response. ANCORBOND processed premixes show a reduction in dimensional scatter when compared to a standard premix The use of bonded FD-20Cu in FC-0208 is equivalent to bonded Standard Cu under the conditions evaluated. The use of FD-20Cu in place of standard Cu should be considered where there the possibility of copper segregation due to powder handling exists. References 1 T. Murphy and M.
