Heat Treatment of High-Pressure Die Castings

고압 다이캐스팅의 열처리 Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A volume 38, pages2564–2574 (2007)Cite this article Abstract High-pressure die-cast Al alloys cannot normally be heated at high temperatures due to the presence of pores containing entrapped gases, which lead to the formation of surface blisters. It has been found that blistering can be avoided by using considerably shorter solution-treatment times
