Effect of Low-Temperature Recovery Treatments on Subsequent Recrystallization in Al-2.5%Mg
The effect of low temperature recovery treatments on the recrystallization kinetics during subsequent high temperature annealing was investigated in three Al-2.5%Mg alloys with various Fe additions. Recovery treatments were carried out at 190oC for times ranging from 0.25 to 65 hrs. Recrystallization treatments were carried out at 280oC. The kinetics of recrystallization was followed using the techniques of hardness measurement, optical metallography and calorimetry.
