Aging is a form of heat treatment often utilized in the Aluminum industry. The aging process is a very sensitive time and temperature dependent heat treatment that strengthens the various properties found in aluminum alloys.
It is called “aging” as this process would occur naturally over time, but the heat-treatment method of artificial aging speeds up the process to achieve the desired end-use properties. The specific time and temperature requirements of an Aging furnace is dependent on the unique composition of alloys present in the aluminum.
Aging furnaces are commonly used in the automotive, aerospace, transportation industries, as aluminum aging produces durable components for long-term use.
