Abstract

The recrystallization and recrystallization textures in cold-rolled direct chill cast (DC) and continuous cast (CC) AA 5182 aluminum alloys were investigated. The recrystallization behavior of cold-rolled DC and CC AA 5182 aluminum alloys was evaluated by tensile properties. The evolution of recrystallization textures in cold-rolled DC and CC AA 5182 aluminum alloys was determined by X-ray diffraction. The results showed that the recrystallization temperature of cold-rolled DC AA 5182 aluminum alloy was somewhat lower than that of cold-rolled CC AA 5182 aluminum alloy. The resulting recrystallization textures of cold-rolled AA 5182 aluminum alloy were characterized by the strong R orientation and the cube orientation with strong scattering about the rolling direction towards the Goss orientation. CC AA 5182 aluminum alloy showed slightly weaker recrystallization textures than DC AA 5182 aluminum alloy.
