Paper Title:
The Effect of Aging Heat Treatment on the Mechanical Properties of Cu-Al-Fe-(x) Alloys
  Abstract

Alloys were produced by casting of Cu-Al-Fe-Be and Cu-Al-Fe-Ni aluminum bronzes and aged. The microstructures and mechanical properties were evaluated. The results indicated that solution and aging treatment can significantly improve the plasticity of Cu-Al-Fe-Be and Cu-Al-Fe-Ni, while the strength and hardness remained in the quenched level. Extending the aging time can effectively enhance the mechanical properties of alloys, and the longer the aging time, the higher the electric resistance of alloys. According to the results, the mechanical properties of the Cu-Al-Fe-Be alloy can be improved remarkably by solution treatment for 120 min at 950°C, followed by aging treatment for 120 min at 350°C, and quenched. While the most suitable heat treatment for the Cu-Al-Fe-Ni alloy was solution treatment 120 min at 950°C, followed by aging for 120 min at 450°C, and quenched. The experimental result also suggested that the Cu-Al-Fe-Be alloy possessed higher hardness and tensile strength compared to the Cu-Al-Fe-Ni alloy.
