Abstract

This paper presents the results of research on material and microstructural effects in a hypoutectic Al–Mg– Si–Mn–Fe alloy, modified by the addition of Ti and Ti + P, in two series of castings, gravity and pressure. It has been found that the use of high pressure die casting technology allows for significant improvement of mechanical properties, especially tensile strength and plasticity of the examined alloy. On the other hand, the addition of Ti and Ti + P caused different material effects. In gravity castings, the addition of Ti and Ti + P caused a decrease in strength and plasticity, while in high-pressure castings, an increase in the values of these parameters was observed. The microstructural effects related to the foundry technology and those caused by Ti and P additions were revealed, such as differences in the phase composition of the interdendritic eutectics and in the morphology and dispersion of their phase constituents: Mg2Si and α-Al(Fe,Mn)Si.
