The creation of The T6 Precipitation Age Hardened ALUMINUM
Following in the same design concept as The ORIGINAL Worlds 1st INconel Alloy. It all starts with the selection of a special and bespoke Alloy….. distinctive for its strength to weight. This specific Aluminum Alloy once selected then undergoes a very unique Precipitation Age Hardening process prior to crafting.
There is a small array of differentiated Aluminum Alloys and Heat Treatments to choose from, but only one T6 Alloy was sourced specifically for its distinctive sonic benefits.
The selection of The T6 Precipitation Age Hardened Aluminum began by sourcing an alloy with a very unique aging process. This bespoke Aluminum alloy introduces a Precipitation Age Hardening process forming small crystals that inhibit slip and creep issues at elevated temperatures. This delivers an Aluminum Alloy with all the sought after sonic characteristics of classic Aluminum drum shells while creating an Aluminum Alloy exceeding the yield strength of certain Stainless Steel Alloys. This process takes one of the Classic drum materials and further increases every aspect of its performance in Strength, Density, Corrosion & Temperature resistance.
The T6 Precipitation Age hardening process
A special dispersion-strengthening heat treatment. By solution treatment, quenching and aging, a coherent precipitate forms that provides a substantial strengthening effect by impeding dislocation movement. This phenomenon is termed precipitation hardening or age hardening of The T6 Aluminum-Zinc-Magnesium-Copper Alloy (Al-Zn-Mg-Cu).
So what does it sound like?…... In comparison to INconel The T6 Aluminum is Dryer,
Warmer, but still with emphatic
punctuation. The T6 Precipitation Age Hardened Aluminum brings an unparalleled distinctive note and vibrance not found in industry standard “Aluminum”. Simply put, it stands in a league of its own.
