I am going to heat treat Al alloy ribbons of low thickness (about 0.01 to 0.025 in). Could you please suggest me the time needed for solutionising as well as aging treatment if my heat treatment cycle for thick sample is as follows?

Solutionization 540C for 16 hrs
Quench Room temperature water
Aging 190C for 48 hrs

Thanking You

in my opinion you need use the same parameters.
Heat treatment main idea is the difussion of the atoms, so there is the time needed for this process.
