AlCu4 Alloy

Alloy name: AlCu4
Diagram No.: 835
Type of diagram: TTT
Chemical composition in weight %: AlCu4
Alloy group: Aluminium-based alloys
Note: Isothermal TTT diagram of aluminium alloy AlCu4 [Ashb98, Zsch96].
As shown in Figure with the example of the alloy AlCu4, the required quenching rate can only be estimated roughly from the isothermal TTT diagram. In spite of that, it is quite clear that very high quenching rates of several 100 K/s are required in order to suppress the precipitation of Al2Cu at the grain boundaries with the abovedescribed consequential strength and corrosion problems. Quenching is mostly performed in watery baths or by spray cooling. For this purpose, care must be taken to assure rapid movement of the components from solution annealing to quenching.
