Aluminium focus for Verona

Dr Thomas Dorin recently gave a presentation at the International Conference on Extrusion and Benchmark (Aluminium 2000) in Verona, Italy. Dr Dorin’s talk on ‘Impact of scandium and zirconium on extrudability, microstructure and hardness of a binary Al-Cu alloy’ presented results from his ARC Linkage project with CleanTeq. The research shows that hardness is almost doubled in the alloy containing both scandium and zirconium compared to the binary alloy. Read more.

The conference dinner was held in a palace near Verona.
