Processing and Characterization of Ag-Cu-Sn Brazing Alloy Prepared by a Mechanical Alloying Method

Mechanical alloying was used to prepare an Ag-Cu-Sn brazing alloy with the low amounts of intermetallic compounds. X-ray diffraction and differential scanning calorimetry were carried out to investigate the phase transformation of the as-milled samples. It seemed that the intermetallic compounds experienced the stage of synthesis-decomposition-resynthesis in the ball milling process. By controlling the ball milling time and tin contents, the solid solution phases of Ag (Cu, Sn) and Ag (Cu) were achieved in the 60Ag30Cu10Sn sample after milling for 40 h. Although the intermetallic compound will be generated during the brazing process, the improvement of their distributed morphology is beneficial for the good bonding interface of the joint with stainless steel substrate.
