The mechanical properties and corrosion resistance changes of AlSi10Mg(Cu) alloy under different isothermal exposure conditions have been investigated by tensile experiments and electrochemical testing. The results show that isothermal exposure has a significant influence on the mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. Tensile strength is more sensitive to the higher exposure temperature, while the corrosion resistance is greater affected by the lower exposure temperature and shorter time. Microstructure evolution of AlSi10Mg(Cu) alloy related to different isothermal exposure condition has also been studied by using transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The results indicate that the isothermal exposure changed the type and density of nanoscale precipitates in the alloy, which in turn induced the change of performance of the alloy. View Full-Text
