    I have sintered powdered Aluminum at temperature about 540 Celsius, can i anyone tell me how it should be characterized ?
    Meaningly, has it been sintered successfully or not !

    first hold it in a compression vice and start applying pressure. If it breaks and powder is seen, the sintering temp is to be increased with also increase holding time. If powder is not formed, sintering should be ok, try rolling or extrusion as secondary process.
