Abstract. The effect of current pulse application on the mechanical behaviour and plasticity of the 5754 aluminium alloy was studied. Tensile and deep drawing tests were conducted. The 5754 aluminium alloy in two different states of hardening was used: H111 and H22. The results show that the application of current pulses can significantly increase the plasticity of the examined alloys in the case of the tensile test. The dynamic recovery process is the main process responsible for the increase in plasticity of the material. However, in the case of the deep drawing process, it was observed that the increase in the material formability is low, and further studies are needed.
