Advanced Aluminium Alloy Twin Roll Casting Lubricant

The proposed project aims at developing a new type of lubricant to be used for twin-roll casting with the advantage of providing a better flexibility for the choice of aluminum alloys currently used in twin-roll casting. The biggest advantage is to reduce the energy demand as the liquid aluminum alloy can be directly processed at high speed by twin roll casting without the necessity of a reheat cycle. Another objective of the proposed project is to provide a higher heat transfer to the liquid aluminium twin-rolled casted associated to a more uniform controlled grain growth to provide a high mechanical strength after processing.
