Abstract

The microstructures and mechanical properties of Zn-Al and Zn-Al-Ti alloys wires prepared by continuous casting and extrusion (CASTEX) were studied in detail. The Al3Ti intermetallics in Zn-Al-Ti alloy distribute homogeneously at matrix of Zn-Al eutectics/eutectoid phase, and can effectively refine microstructure and enhance mechanical properties. The metastable AlxTi phase formed during the non-equilibrium crystallization of CASTEX Zn alloys, having close structure to Al-rich phase, can act as the nucleation site of phase, and increase the nucleation rate of phase and refine microstructure further. The CASTEX Zn-27Al-0.1Ti alloy has the comprehensive properties
