Effects of different Al additions (3wt.%, 5wt.%, 7wt.%, 9wt.% Al) on as-cast microstructure and properties of Mg-Al-1Si-0.5Sr alloy were studied. The average grain size decreases and then increases with the increasing of Al additions. There are polyhedral shape, fine fibers shape, a few Chinese script Mg2Si particles and -Mg17Al12 divorced eutectic phase appeared in the interdendritic area in Mg-3Al-1Si-0.5Sr alloys. With the increase of Al content, more and more -Mg17Al12 divorced eutectic phase appear in semi-continuous distribution. The lamellar-like shape -Mg17Al12 secondary-precipitated phase emerge with Al addition of 5wt.%, 7wt.% and 9wt.%. The optimum tensile properties of Mg-7Al-1Si-0.5Sr alloy can be obtained, where the ultimate strength, yield strength and elongation are 201.1MPa, 160.7MPa, 4.8% at ambient temperature and 164.5MPa, 128.0MPa, 7.4% at 150°C respectively. The hardness increased with the increasing of Al content.
