Processing 20 Ply Clad Plate by Accumulative Clad Rolling from Stainless Steel/Aluminum/Aluminum Alloy…/Stainless Steel Sheets
According to the principle of accumulative roll bonding(ARB),the 20 ply clad sheet from austenitic stainless steel (STS304)/pure aluminum(Al1060)/aluminum alloy(Al3003) …/ austenitic stainless steel (STS304)sheets with excellent heat, anti-corrosion and mechanical properties of stainless steel and the high thermal and electrical conductivities of aluminum was fabricated by accumulative clad rolling (ACR). Well-bonded clad plate was successfully obtained in the procedure: Al1060 sheets with a thickness of 0.5mm and Al3003 sheets 0.5mm thick and STS304 sheets 0.5mm thick were employed. Basic clad sheet from different ply Al1060/Al3003 sheets was obtained with an initial rolling reduction of 44% at 450°C followed by annealing at 300°C, then ACR was with reduction of 50% at 550°C from STS304 on each side. The stretch property, bonding property, microscopic structure and interface composition were measured and analyzed. It was indicated that the best clad sheet had bonding strength of 129MPa and stretch strength of 225MPa. was of 129Mpa bonding strength and 225Mpa stretch strength. At the end,STS304 sheet with thickness of 3mm which being used in superior quality kitchenware and finishing material and so on was taken the place of the clad sheet from STS304 sheets of 1mm and Al1060 of 1mm and Al3003 of 1mm. Therefore, it decreased by 44% in weight and economizes rare metal elements Cr and Ni of 66% in weight.
