In precipitation-hardened aluminum alloys, the key manifestation of this phenomenon is the development of dispersoids, tiny clumps of metal oxides called Guinier-Preston zones.
Theory suggests that, if prefabricated dispersoids in the form of nanoballoons were introduced into a pure aluminum melt, the resulting alloy could not only be stronger, but lighter as well.
However, here one has to consider the retarding effect due to the presence of dispersoid particles.
3] dispersoids was analysed by gas chromatographic measurements in [12].
Dispersoid colonies typically result from oxidation of localized concentrations of magnesium that form during alloying malpractice.
