After the metal has undergone natural ageing and reached its T4 properties. In either case, the material can be brought up to full T6 properties by subsequent precipitation treatment (artificial ageing). Such procedures are possible only if suitable heat-treatment facilities exist. Solution treatment involves holding the part at a temperature slightly above 500°C for 20 or 30 minutes and then quenching it in water, which causes distortion. The temperature needed for precipitation treatment is lower (under 180°C) and less critical, the required holding time being several hours.

The forming of work-hardened (non-heat-treatable) material can be facilitated by applying local heat at the bend. A problem in so doing is the difficulty in controlling the degree of heat, because unlike steel aluminium does not change colour when the right temperature is reached.
