As-cast wrought-grade aluminium alloy
The micrograph shows Al-Mg-Fe-Si containing < 1wt.% of each solute. Addition of TiB2 particles facilitates the formation of a fine, equiaxed grain structure (grain refinement). This micrograph illustrates one of the possible growth morphologies that a solidifying metal can adopt (c.f. micrograph 711). The grains in this structure exhibit no dendritic branching, i.e. the solid-liquid interfaces of the growing grains are smooth. When a solid grain is growing from the liquid phase, it will initiall
