Paper Title:
Effects of Natural Ageing on T6 Heat Treated Rheocasts of 319S Aluminum Alloy
  Abstract

T6 heat treatment is an effective method to improve the comprehensive properties of Al-Si-Cu-Mg series aluminium alloys. Solution treatment temperature and time, quench process and media, as well as artificial ageing temperature and time are the key factors to determine mechanical properties. Besides these factors, natural ageing, i.e. the holding time between quenching and the starting of artificial treatment at ambient temperature was observed to be significant affect mechanical properties of the aluminium alloys. This effect on semi solid processed aluminium alloys was lack of investigations as the semi solid process produces T6 treatable and weldable components. The present paper focuses on the change regularity of hardness and precipitate behaviour of semi-solid 319S aluminium alloy under different natural ageing (NA) treatment additional to standard T6. Density and morphology of hardening precipitates are analysed using TEM, and the influence mechanism of NA during T6 heat treatment will be discussed. The results show that NA has a positive influence on mechanical properties of the rheo-cast 319S alloy.
