Cast-in ferrous inserts in aluminum castings can be a powerful tool to locally improve properties such as wear resistance, corrosion resistance, heat transfer and strength. The interaction between the two metals can result in two distinct types of bonding, a mechanical bond interlocking the two metals and a metallurgical bond. A continuous metallurgical bond could have the potential to improve load and heat transfer across the boundary between the steel and the aluminum. The formation of a continuous reaction layer between the ferrous insert and the aluminum alloy is a diffusion process which requires both energy and time to grow. To practically apply this technology a better understanding and quantification of the conditions necessary for the formation of a continuous metallurgical bond and is the focus of this work. Results will be presented and discussed.
