Abstract:   (3148 Views)
The influences of age hardening and HIP (Hot Isostatic Pressing) on the mechanical properties of A356 (Al 7Si 0.6 Mg) casting alloys were studied. Cast bars were homogenized, heated and maintained at a temperature of 540°C for a duration of 2 hours, followed by rapid cooling in a polymeric solution. The castings were age hardened at 180°C for a duration of 4 hours before being subjected to HIP process at pressure of 104 MPa for 2 hours. The results indicated that the age hardening process used improved the tensile properties of A356. The HIP process removed the internal surface-connected porosities and improved the ductility of the samples significantly. Additionally, HIP reduced scattering in the tensile test data
