Considering the low curvature of the liquidus and solidus, very narrow freezing ranges are expected for small deviations from the Cu-Mn congruent point.
They indicate that shear strength of the 1206 depends on peak temperature, time above liquidus and preheat slope, but not on cooling rate.
This finding agrees well with the more recent results of sophisticated process models which indicate a so-called <<immobilization>> temperature; a temperature in the solidification zone where the fraction solid prevents any liquid exchange with the bulk above the liquidus line.
In the case of the heavy board, the peak temperature did not reach the liquidus when all the settings were set low.
