Research on Effect of La on Microstructure in Semi-Solid A356 Alloy

Abstract:

Article Preview

Semi-solid A356 alloy slurry grain-refined by Al-La master alloy is prepared by low superheat pouring. The effects of La on the morphology and size of primary grain in semi-solid A356 alloy are researched. The results indicate that the semi-solid A356 alloy slurry with particle-like and rosette-like primary grains can be prepared by low superheat pouring. The size and morphology of the primary grain in semi-solid A356 alloy are markedly improved by La. The refining mechanism of La on the morphology and size of the primary grain in semi-solid A356 alloy is delved. The eutectic reaction of Al-La binary alloy provides the effective nuclei for formation of the primary grains in semi-solid A356 alloy.
