This paper presents a process and its variants to prepare alumina particle suspension in liquid tin alloy. Complication may arise due to the non-wettability of alumina by tin alloy. For this purpose, prior to introduce the powder into the liquid metal, the particles of alumina are covered by a thin layer of tin metal by using a controlled milling process. The operating conditions leading to an optimal coverage without particle damage and to a good dispersibility in the liquid metal have been searched.
Key words: liquid metal / coating / wetting / milling / alumina
