Solution Heat Treatments (Aluminum)
|Heating an alloy to a suitable temperature, holding
at that temperature long enough to cause one or more
constituents to enter into solid solution, and then cooling
rapidly enough to hold these constituents in solution.
Aging (Aluminum & Stainless Steels)
Aging is a change in the properties of certain metals
and alloys that occurs at ambient or moderately elevated
temperatures. The change in properties is often, but not
always, due to precipitation, but never involves a change
in chemical composition of the metal or alloy. This process
is often applied after solution heat-treating or after
a cold working operation.
