Effects of Homogenization on the Formability of ZM21 Alloy
The effects of homogenization on the formability for hot deformation of ZM21 wrought magnesium alloys was investigated. The alloys were produced by semi-continuous casting. Experiments including homogenizing annealing, micro-hardness testing and hot compress testing on Gleeble 1500D thermal simulator were carried out. The suggested homogenization parameters from the experimental results for ZM21 alloy is 400C×12h.
