Abstract

Three ternary monotectoid-based Zn-40Al-(1, 2, 3%) Cu alloys were produced by permanent mould casting at different pouring and mould temperatures. The average cooling rate for each alloy was determined. Structure of the alloys was examined using optical and electron microscopes and their hardness, tensile strength, percentage elongation and impact energy were measured. As a result of these investigations the relationships between structure and mechanical properties of the alloys were determined.
