Hot tear-melt quality relationship in 3xxx aluminium alloys

Murat Colak, Engin Tan, Ramazan Kayikci, Derya Dispinar


Corrosion resistance, formability and high strength is few of the major properties that makes aluminium alloys preferred choice of material for extrusion or deep drawing processes. Particularly, buildings, windows, doors are main application areas and it is growing. Twin roll casting method is used to produce such materials. One of the common problems faced in this method is called hot tearing. The effect of alloying elements is the reason for this defect. As a result, segregation causes tear and decrease process efficiency. The economic impact is immanent. Thus, it is aimed to study the hot tear tendency of 3xxx series aluminium alloys and the effect of alloying elements will be investigated in this work.
