Abstract: Effect of misch metal additions (0.3, 0.6, 0.9 and 1.2 wt%) on the refinement of Mg2Si phase in Mg-1.15Si alloy has been studied and compared with the base alloy. MM addition effectively refines the microstructure by breaking the ?-Mg halos and lamellar eutectic phase and the maximum refinement is obtained for 0.6 MM addition. For higher MM additions (0.9 and 1.2 wt%), the refinement effect gets reduced and the formation of RE-Si compound is dominated. Improved tensile properties are obtained with the addition of MM and are attributed to the refinement of microstructure and the presence RE-Si compound. The tensile properties obtained are correlated with the microstructure and mirofractomechnisms. � 2013 The Korean Institute of Metals and Materials and Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.
