Özet

The structure and mechanical properties of magnesium alloy AZ31 are studied after conventional and deformation aging under conditions corresponding to the thermal cycle of polymerization in paint coating of cars. The aging is conducted after 3-h solution treatment at 400A degrees C, water quenching, and aging at 180A degrees C for from 10 min to 6 h. Some of the specimens are deformed by 0.5% right after the solution treatment and then aged by the same regime.
