The Tensile Properties of Aluminum Alloys Formed at Cryogenic Temperatures
It is well known that the mechanical properties of 301 stainless steel are greatly enhanced by forming at cryogenic temperatures [1,2]. This procedure is sufficiently advantageous that the technique of “cryoforming” stainless steels has become a fairly standard procedure, and such products are available from several suppliers.
