The hot cracking susceptibility can be determined by establishing the transition temperature between brittle and ductile fracture at high temperature tensile testing of in situ solidified samples. High temperature tensile properties were determined for commercial cathodic pure Cu and Cu- 30%Zn alloy. The transition temperatures for pure Cu and Cu-30%Zn were evaluated from ultimate tensile stress, true strain and area reduction at different testing temperatures. The results show that hot cracking in pure Cu also occurred below and near to its melting temperature. It can be proposed that in this case excess vacancies and vacancy diffusion and condensation are the dominating mechanisms for hot crack formation. The transition temperature for Cu- 30%Zn was much lower than its solidus temperature and this alloy has more susceptibility to hot cracking as compared to pure Cu. The effect of two different cooling rates (15 °C/min and 60 °C/min) on the transition temperature was investigated. The results show that by increasing cooling rate, the transition temperature will increase. The morphology of fracture surfaces for both ductile and brittle modes were evaluated by SEM Two different morphologies, i.e. interdendiritic and intergranual fracture, was found.

The control of silicone rubber’s viscoelastic properties namely loss factor, storage and loss moduli during crosslinking are crucial as its malleable behaviour changes differently under different conditions and affecting the final product. Hence, it becomes the objective of this study to investigate the rheological behaviour of silicone rubber cured under different formulation ratios with platinum catalysts and triethylamine, methanol & ethanolamine solvent. Measurement was conducted for the silicone rubber to crosslinker ratios of 2.5:7.5, 5:5, 7.5:2.5 and 10:1 at different elevated temperatures, and for the silicone rubber with triethylamine, methanol and ethanolamine at different angular frequencies. While the crossover of storage and modulus curve which signifies a gel point was not observed at higher ratios of platinum used across the temperature range of 25 – 100°C, it was found at 89°C and 95°C with the formulation ratios of 10:1 and 7.5:2.5, respectively. On the other hand, the crossover point was observed for silicone rubber at 100 s-1 for triethylamine, 3 s-1 and 100 s-1 for methanol, and 70 s-1 alongside 290 s-1 for ethanolamine. The presence of gel point indicates that crosslinking of silicone rubber successfully took place and this study proves that controlling the crosslinking behaviour was possible.
