Small amounts of Mn have been used in order to modify the microstructure and thus improve the properties of the alloys. The effect of Mn addition on structure and properties of cold rolled Al-Mg-Si-Cu alloy at different annealed temperatures is presented in this paper. Both recrystallization temperature and activation energy of recrystallization are obtained from the hardness-temperature curves. The results show that Mn can have an inhibitive effect on recrystallization. Within a certain concentration of Mn in the alloy (<0.7 wt.%) both the activation energy of recrystallization and recrystallization start temperature increase with the addition of Mn content. The activation energy of recrystallization of the alloy which contains 0 wt.% Mn, 0.3 wt.% Mn and 0.7 wt.% Mn are respectively 134.4 kJ·mol-1, 137.4 kJ·mol-1 and 140.1 kJ·mol-1 and the recrystallization start temperature increases from 190 to 230 as Mn content increases from 0 to 0.7 wt.%.
