Article Preview

The aim of the paper is to present the influence of a new multifunctional material, a master alloy named Al-Sr-Ti-B, in aluminum foundry alloys. The Al-Sr-Ti-B master alloy represents a new combination of two master alloys, already known in aluminum industry, AlTiB and AlSr, used in treatment of aluminum alloys for grain refining and modification. As Strobloy, our master alloy contain fast dissolving SrAl4 particles and also nucleating particles as TiB2 and (Al,Ti)B2 which are important first in modification and second in grain refining of aluminum alloys. The paper presents optic and electron microscopy studies realized on AlSi7Mg alloy treated with this new multifunctional material
