The paper deals with the study of the influence of heat treatment on the properties of AW5754 aluminium alloy - AZ31 magnesium alloy bimetals. Aluminium alloy was selected as the flyer plate. Parallel set up of materials to be welded was selected. Semtex S30 loose explosive was used for explosion welding of dissimilar metals. Heat treatment of produced AW5754/AZ31 bimetals at the temperatures of 250, 300 and 450 °C for 2, 3, 4 and 5 hours was performed after explosion welding process. Scanning electron microscopy fitted with EDX analysis and microhardness measurements across bimetals interface was used to analyze the weld joints properties before and after heat treatment.
