The Effect of Thermo-Mechanical Processing on the Properties of some Al-Fe-Si Alloys with High Fe/Si Ratio
The paper deals with the effects of thermo-mechanical processing parameters on the properties of two Al-Fe-Si foil alloys. Two twin roll cast alloys with high Fe/Si ratios (Fe/Si≈6) were processed under different combinations of homogenization, deformation and annealing treatments. The influence of small additions of manganese on the mechanical behavior and plastic anisotropy of sheets in hardening and annealing conditions are described. The corrosion resistance of tested sheets in chloride ambience is also presented, because this type of Al foils is dominantly used in the packaging (food) industry and heat exchangers.
