Aluminum can be aged or hardened after it is solution annealed to the “O” condition and using the proper hardening processes to achieve the desired physical properties for the given application.
The aluminum aging process is normally performed in a temperature range of 250° to 400°F. These process temperatures may be held from several hours to several days depending on the desired physical properties. Wisconsin Oven batch ovens are tried, true and industry-vetted for superior aluminum hardening of aluminum casts.
Our ovens have aluminum aged aerospace components, a wide variety of automotive components, military components and extrusions for commercial building trim.
