Effect of trace elements on the material properties of an aluminium casting alloy

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


The aim of the project is to determine the fundamentally effects of impurities and individual micro-alloying elements (eg. as vanadium V, titanium Ti, calcium Ca, zirconium Zr, potassium K, phosphorus P and others) or combinations of these trace elements in aluminum alloys and their impact on the quality of aluminum castings.
As a result, limit values and tolerances for individual impurities (trace elements) should be defined and determined. Further on practical study methods should be developed that support on the one hand a reliable series production of high-quality alloys and castings and on the other hand the procurement of aluminum alloys by the foundries.
