Microstructure of Multi-Pass Friction-Stir-Processed Al-Zn-Mg-Cu Alloys Reinforced by Nano-Sized TiB2 Particles and the Effect of T6 Heat Treatment

Abstract : In this work, a fine-grained structure with a uniform distribution of TiB2 particles and precipitates was achieved in TiB2 particle-reinforced (PR) Al-Zn-Mg-Cu alloys by friction stir processing (FSP). The effects of multi-pass FSP on the microstructure, and TiB2 particle distribution, as well as the microstructural evolution in the following T6 treatment, were investigated by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and associated electron backscattered diffraction. The results showed that the distribution of TiB2 particles and alloy precipitates was further improved with an increase in the FSP passes. Moreover, compared with alloy segregation in the as-cast PR alloys during T6 treatment, a complete solution of the precipitates was achieved in the FSP-treated PR alloys. The fine-grained structure of the FSP-treated PR alloys was thermally stable without any abnormal growth at the high temperature of T6 treatment due to the pinning effect of dispersed TiB2 particles. The strength and ductility of the PR alloys were simultaneously improved by the combination of FSP and T6 treatment.
