Method of manufacturing a micro-alloy high purity aluminum conductor for use at ultra low temperature
MetadataShow full item record
A method for manufacturing an aluminum alloy conductor for use at ultra low temperature which involves the steps of adding at least one of the metallic and semimetallic effective elements selected from the group consisting of B, Ca, Ce, Ga, Y, Yb and Th, in a total amount of 6 to 200 weight ppm, into a previously prepared molten high purity aluminum having a purity of not less than 99.98 wt % to thereby obtain a molten metal mixture; casting the molten metal mixture to thereby obtain a casting; subjecting the casting to extrusion working at 150° C. to 350° C. in an area reduction ratio of 1:10 to 1:150 whereby an extrusion worked product is formed; and annealing the extrusion worked product at a temperature of 250° C. to 530° C. for 3 to 120 minutes, whereby an aluminum alloy conductor for use at ultra low temperature is obtained.
