Spray Forming of Mg2Si Rich Aluminum Alloys
Aluminium Alloys with a 22 wt.-% Mg2Si content were spray formed. This alloy features a low density and is therefore a superior material for lightweight applications. The main problem in the spray forming of this type of alloy was the occurrence of high porosities. First process optimizations have been performed to decrease porosity under a certain level, so that it can be closed by an extrusion process.
