The influences of RE and P complex modification on microstructure and impact toughness of hypereutectic Al-24Si alloy are investigated. The result shows that the coarse block primary silicon is refined obviously and its edges and angles are blunted under the influences of the complex modification of RE and P. The large needle eutectic silicon is modified to the short-rod or particle ones also. The alloys have the finest microstructure and highest impact toughness when adding about 0.10% P and 0.9% RE into alloys. Compared with the unmodified alloy, the average size of primary silicon in the modified alloys refined from 93.5μm to 24.1μm and the impact toughness of alloys increases to 11.0062J/cm2 from 7.3572J/cm2. The excellent impact toughness of alloys can be attributed to the increase of initiation energy and expand energy of the cracks caused by the refinement of primary silicon and eutectic silicon after complex modified with P and RE.
