Abstract : Factors affecting the physical characteristics and chemical composition of iron-cooper powder deposits obtained by electrolysis, have been investigated. Effect of process variables such as current density, pH, temperature, time, concentration of electrolyte and agitation, has been studied over a wide range, for theoretical interest and to obtain powder deposits of a definite composition. Metallographic examination of iron-copper powder thus prepared after compacting and sintering, has revealed uniform and homogeneous dispersion of the two metals. The technique of preparation presented in this paper is a better substitute to the conventional practice of preparing binary metal powders by mixing and tumbling.
