Abstract


The as-cast and heat-treated structure of permanent mould castings of AlMg5Si2Mn alloys with different contents of Ti has been investigated by differential scanning calorimetry, hardness and microhardness measurements, tensile tests and fractography analyses, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and energy dispersive X-ray analysis. We have established that α-Al dendrites can be nucleated on an Al-Ti substrate, and also that primary Mg2Si crystals can be nucleated on oxides, including oxides of Al and Ti compounds. The dependence of the change in mechanical properties on ageing time, and on the amount of Ti in the alloys, is shown.
