Abstract

AA 6101 wire alloy has been used in the electric transmission lines in company of the cable industries of Biskra (Algeria) for several years. In this work, the AA 6101 alloy was subjected to recrystallization annealing treatment at 400 °C and holding for 30 min, to see the effects of this treatment on the mechanical and electrical properties of drawn Al-Mg-Si wire. The recrystallization annealing treatment leads to the microstructural changes of the textured form, which causes the softening of the wire, that is to say an increasing of ductility. On the other hand, this heat treatment accelerates the recrystallization mechanism, accompanied by a softening of the wires and a reduction in the electrical resistivity. Characterization methods used in this work were: Electron back scattered diffraction (EBSD), X-Ray diffraction analysis (XRD), Vickers microhardness, tensile test, measuring electrical resistivity, scanning electron microscope (SEM) and energy diffraction spectrometer (EDS).

Keywords: AA6101 wire alloy, recrystallization, mechanical and electrical properties
