Abstract

In this work, the wear behaviour of composite with reinforcement of 10% nano kaolinite fabricated utilizing a novel encapsulating technique will be compared to those of as-cast AA5059. The samples for every group were produced using the stir-casting technique and a novel encapsulating technique. For group 1, AA5059 was used as cast, while for group 2, a composition of nano kaolinite (10%) and AA5059 was used as a composite. ASTM E92 standards created the samples, and their wear behavior was assessed using a pin-on-disc apparatus. In each group, there were 20 samples. This study produces the G-power as 80% where α = 0.05 for every set, and the total sample size is 40. The material with 10% nano kaolinite filler received the highest wear resistance properties, which is 58% lesser than the AA5059 as-cast. The t-test’s statistical analysis reveals a p = 0.00 (p < 0.05) effectively in the difference between both groups’ mean-variance of wear. Considering the inherent limitations of this study, it is noticeable that the composite with 10% nano kaolinite significantly increases the AA5059 composite’s wear resistance.
