Abstract A study of the influence of minor additions of copper or manganese on hot tear susceptibility in Al-Mg-Si alloys has been conducted. Testing was carried out using a laboratory scale hot tearing rig and the results were validated using an analysis of cast house cracking scrap data for 6060 and 6063 extrusion billet alloys. Mn content was found to have a strong influence on hot tearing rates.
