    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

    Hi,
    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.
