Comparison of the Heat Treatment Response of SSM-HPDC 6082 and 6004 Wrought Alloys with A356 and F357 Casting Alloys

Semi-solid metal high pressure die casting was used to produce plates from traditional wrought Al-Mg-Si alloys 6082 and 6004, as well as from traditional casting Al-Si-Mg alloys A356 and F357. The high Si-content of the casting alloys offer several advantages, including a faster artificial aging response, higher strength for comparable Mg contents and less sensitivity to prior natural aging on peak strength. However, over-aging occurs earlier in the casting alloys than in the wrought alloys.
