Recent studies have revealed that hydrogen embrittlement in Al-Zn-Mg alloys appears to be dominated by hydrogen partitioning to MgZn2 precipitates. A method has recently been proposed for reducing the hydrogen concentration at MgZn2 precipitates by adding specific intermetallic compound particles that have high hydrogen trap energy. In the present study, the effectiveness of Al7Cu2Fe particles on suppression of hydrogen embrittlement in Al-Zn-Mg-Cu alloys was evaluated using X-ray microtomography. Quasi-cleavage cracks were found to be initiated in regions where local volume fractions of the Al7Cu2Fe particles were relatively low. Hydrogen partitioning to the MgZn2 precipitate interface was suppressed, even in high hydrogen concentration material, by adding Al7Cu2Fe particles. However, the fractional area of the quasi-cleavage fracture in the material with high hydrogen concentration was higher due to insufficient hydrogen diffusion inside the Al7Cu2Fe particles and at the interface between the aluminum matrix and the particles. It appears that finely distributed small Al7Cu2Fe particles might effectively suppress hydrogen embrittlement.
