Effect of Solution Treatment Temperature on Properties of an Al11Si3Cu0.35Mg Cast Alloy
The present work was performed on Al11Si3Cu0.35Mg samples cast in a permanent mold preheated to 200 °C. The tensile properties for varies solution treated samples aged at 200 °C for 6 h were examined in order to study the influence of solution temperature on the alloy properties. The dissolution of copper-containing phases and the incipient melting were analyzed for cast samples solution treated in the temperature range 500~520 °C for 8 h followed by quenching in water. The influence of the incipient melting on mechanical properties has been discussed.
