On the basis of results of hot tensile tests made in the range of temperature 623-873 K and strain rate range of 10-4-10-2s-1 on A199.99, AlMgMn and AIMgSi materials, stress exponent of n=4.2, 4.8, and 4.8 and activation energies of 120, 140 and 165 kJ/mol were obtained, respectively. In one case for an AlFeSi alloy n=7 and Q=220 kJ/mol was found. The strain to fracture increases slightly with strain rate and temperature in the alloys. The results are explained by the effect of different intermetallic particles.
