Application of quasicrystalline powder Al-Cu-Fe:
Filler for polymers and elastomers to improve physical, mechanical and antifriction characteristics, wear resistance, hydrophobicity and adhesion. Significant increase in wear resistance in Teflon (PTFE), in Polyphenylene sulfide (PPS);
Filler for polymer powders used in 3D printing, Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) additive manufacturing;
Development of new composite materials and alloys with improved characteristics in comparison with the original;
Reducing friction losses, increasing the service life of units and assemblies, increasing energy efficiency and reducing energy consumption of equipment as an additive in the lubrication systems of mechanisms;
Creation of coatings: anti-friction, non-stick, anti-stick, hydrophobic, reducing the level of deposits and slagging of pipes and containers;
We propose to test a quasicrystalline powder of the AlCuFe system and its variations doped with boron or silicon.
