Quenching media based on polyalkylene glycol have been used for heat treatment of aluminum alloys instead of hot water for 50 years. However, their use ;till accompanied by some difficulties. In the aircraft industry of the U.S. aqueous solutions of polymers based on polyalkylene glycol are called quenching liquids of types I and II. The aim of the present work is to consider the possibility of using these media for quenching aluminum alloys.
