The scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-Ray analysis of the Al-Fe alloy revealed the formation of varying ironaluminide intermetallic compounds. The Al-Fe alloys were produced by varying the composition of Fe. The pure ‘Al’ billets were heated up to 750°c and in the molten condition of aluminium ‘Fe’ powder was added resulting in an exothermic reaction. The exothermic reaction raised the molten bath temperature to ~ 1400°c which activated the formation of intermetallic compound.
