The alloying behavior of RE element of Er in Al-Cu-Mg-Ag alloys with addition of Er were investigated in this paper. During solidification ,most of element Er segregated at grain boundaries in the form of primary Al8Cu4Er phase and part of Er dissolved in the α-Al matrix. After rolling, Al8Cu4Er phase could be fragmentated into dispersed particle which leaded to an increase of the grain boundary strengthening . TEM observation and tensile strength test showed that small addition of Er retarded the precipitation of Ω phase and prolonged the time corresponding to the peak aging,with a remarkable increase of ductility.
