Paper Title:
Microstructure and Tensile Properties of Al-(5~10)wt%Mg Alloy Sheets Fabricated by Twin Roll Casting and Rolling Process
  Abstract

High strength Al-Mg alloy strips with high Mg contents (5-10wt%Mg) were successfully fabricated by twin roll casting. In order to get a good surface quality of Al-Mg strips, an optimum process condition was investigated in this experiment. The morphology of the cast nozzle and the roll separate force during twin roll casting was important to improve the surface quality of the strip and homogeneity of the cast structure through the thickness. The size of intermetallic particle like Al-Fe compounds was reduced down to 1~2m due to a high cooling rate of Al melt during strip casting. In addition, the dendrite structure was very fine and the segregation of Al8Mg5 phase between grains was remarkably reduced. Therefore, the Al-Mg strips have good workability during additional cold/warm rolling processes. After annealing, the rolled sheets have superior tensile properties to a commercial high strength Al-Mg alloy sheet.
