  • Scandium-reinforced aluminum alloys represent a new generation of high-performance alloys that display numerousadvantages over high-strength aluminum alloys. Scandium-reinforced alloys are much stronger than other high-strength alloys, exhibit significant grain refinement, strengthen welds, and eliminate hot cracking in welds. These alloys also exhibit a good resistance to corrosion as shown by recent studies. A review of their mechanical, microstructural, and corrosion characteristics shows… CONTINUE READING
