 Abstract
Carbon fiber/aluminum (CF/Al) composites were successfully fabricated without pressure casting using wettability modification of carbon fiber. The wettability of liquid aluminum on carbon fibers was enhanced through electroless plating of copper on carbon fibers. Liquid aluminum was well infiltrated into carbon fiber bundles with Cu coating layer due to low wetting angle, and a lot of pores that existed in CF/Al composite without Cu coating on CF were greatly removed. However, a few tiny pores existed in carbon fiber bundles, which is due to not bad wettability between CF and Al but shrinkage cavity that was generated during cooling of CF/Al composite. The tiny pores could be effectively removed by a subsequent rolling.
