Influence of Vanadium on Aging Characteristics of Cold Rolled Cu-Ni-Si Alloy
In order to investigate the influence of vanadium on aging dynamics of Cu-Ni-Si alloy, the microstructure, hardness and electrical conductivity of the cold rolled Cu-Ni-Si alloys with varying V content were systematically studied. The results show that V can postpone the recovery and accelerate the precipitation with (NiV)2Si compound. Consequently, V can increase hardness obviously. However, because of the precipitation during the hot rolling procedure, V addtion has a little harmed to electrical conductivity.
