High Energy Milling

Milling is a dry/wet powder metallurgy processing technique, which produces homogenous alloy powder. It was performed using a horizontal rotary ballmill; ZoZ Simoloyer® miller.

Through the use of milling, which is a completely solid-state processing technique, a greater extent of supersaturation of selected additives is achieved without the need to consider the limitations of maximum solubility imposed by phase diagrams.
The rapid deformation from milling also preserved the integrity of the element composition of the samples, thus allowing development of novel reactive materials with flake-like morphology.

The amount of their non-equilibrium (metastable) state can be controlled (mainly due to the storage of mechanical energy by plastic deformation) through the method of arrested milling.
