The microstructure of both 5000 and 6000 series alloy sheet can be controlled to provide the properties required for particular automotive applications. The work-hardening 5000 series alloys, with between 3 and 6% Mg as the major alloying addition, are supplied to the automotive companies in the annealed temper and are characterized by a recrystallized grain structure which is influenced by the insoluble Fe-based intermetallics, dispersoids, and the work-hardening rate. The annealed strength… CONTINUE READING
