Abstract

AA7075 Al alloys are widely used in the aerospace industry. However, the mechanical properties of these alloys are insufficient in space conditions. AA7075 Al alloy is produced by powder metallurgy method due to the good wear properties. Then AA7075 Al alloys have to be adapted to mechanical properties MoS2-TiB2 composite films are deposited. MoS2-TiB2 composite films were grown on powder metal substrate using CFUBMS method in three different MoS2 target currents. Structural properties of composite films were analyzed by SEM, XRD and XPS methods. The mechanical properties of the films are carried out by microhardness and scratch tester. The best grade value of AA7075 powder metal alloy was made with 800MPa pressing pressure and increased from 2.61g/cm3 to 2.72g/cm3 after sintering. The highest hardness was obtained at the lowest MoS2 target voltage of 4.7GPa. The highest critical load value was obtained as 26N at the highest MoS2 target voltage.
