Mohd Tahir, Suraya and Anuar, Mohd Shamsul and Simmadorai, Dinesh (2014) The ejection and strength of binary iron-cellulose powder compacts. Applied Mechanics and Materials, 564. pp. 434-438. ISSN 1660-9336; ESSN: 1662-7482


In this study, the ejection stage during the densification process and the mechanical strength of green (unsintered) compact were studied for the binary powder compact of iron and micro crystalline cellulose (MCC). The mass percentage of MCC powder were varied between 0% to 60% of the total mass composition of the iron and MCC mixture. Three different compaction load of 30kN, 60 kN and 90 kN were applied during the compaction process. The tensile strength of the green compact was determined by conducting diametral compression test where the green compact was loaded until fracture. From the compaction experiment, green compact with 60% MCC and 40% iron is the least friable which leads to coherent and well compactable powder. This composition also results in the green compact with the highest tensile strength.
