Effects of Cu Addition on Nanocluster Formation and Two-Step Aging Behaviors of Al–Mg–Si Alloys
Abstract:Two types of nanoclusters, i.e., Cluster (1) and Cluster (2), are detected in both Cu-free and Cu-added alloys. The Cu addition to the Al–Mg–Si alloys highly suppresses the formation of Cluster (1) at the initial stage of natural aging and causes higher peak hardness. The over-aging is suppressed in the Cu-added alloy, showing higher thermal stability.
