Abstract: A new grain refiner master alloy based on the Al-Zr-Ti system was prepared by salt assisted synthesis. 90% of Al3Zr particles in the master alloy were ranged between 1 and 13 μm. 80% reduction of grain size was observed with the addition of 0.2wt% Zr equivalent master alloy combined with ultrasonic treatment in an Al alloy. The new master alloy demonstrated 30% improvement in grain refinement efficiency compared to the one prepared by a conventional alloy route.
