Abstract

Conventionally, age-hardening is effected by solution-treating at an elevated temperature, quenching down to room temperature, and then reheating to some optimum temperature to allow the precipitation of a second phase. If it were possible to solution-treat and then quench from this temperature directly to the aging bath, and still obtain the some properties as from conventional aging, a simple one-step aging treatment would be practical. This one-step treatment will be referred to as direct-quench age-hardening.
