(Structure and properties of semi-finished products from aluminum alloys. The Handbook. Responsible editors Vielen, Vagliano, Moscow, metallurgy, 1984).

Alloy B95 has a good combination of service and technological characteristics, but the strength characteristics of this alloy is not high enough, both at room and at elevated temperatures.

In General, the alloy VCP has sufficient strength at room temperature. However, the heat resistance of the alloy is low and when the temperature strength properties decrease very rapidly. Long-term durability of alloy and creep resistance at elevated temperatures low. Additionally, the semi-finished products of this alloy is obtained with a high degree of plastic deformation, such as sheets, have low strength properties. The alloy has an increased specific gravity.

The technical result is an increase in strength properties at room temperature, particularly semi-finished products obtained with a high degree of deformation, such as, for example, whether what you rolled pipe, as well as increased heat resistance, i.e. the reduction in the rate of softening with increasing test temperature. The alloy is characterized by high values of long-term strength at moderately elevated temperatures.

We offer alloy allows you to get any kind of deformed semi-finished products (forged, rolled, extruded) with a stable precrystallization structure due to the presence of secondary particles dispersed phase Al3(Sc, Zr, Ti, Mo), inhibiting the recrystallization. The presence in the structure of the alloy particle phase Al9Fe, Ni and particle phases of Mg2Si eutectic origin lead to the achievement of high strength properties in all kinds of semi-finished products at room and elevated temperatures. The alloy has high values of long-term strength at moderately elevated temperatures. The specific weight of the alloy is less than the specific gravity of the prototype.

Example. The continuous casting method were obtained ingots with a diameter of 95 mm two alloys: a well-known alloy of medium composition and the proposed medium alloy chemical composition. The chemical composition of the alloys shown in table 1.
