CURRENT STATE AND PERSPECTIVES OF INCREASING OF TRIBOTECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF ZINC ALLOYS
Cast zinc alloys are widely used in various industries of national economics, including the manufacturing of products for tribotechnical applications. There are such approaches to solving the problem of improving the tribotechnical characteristics of zinc alloys, as the search for new alloy compositions and optimization of existing ones. However, the capabilities of traditional alloys to achieve the desired properties of products that meet the growing demands almost exhausted at present time. One of the most effective ways to improve the tribotechnical properties of zinc alloys is realization of the principle of reinforced heterophase structure, which is the basis of creation of composite alloys.
