Alloy properties can considerably be improved by the addition of small amount of alloying elements, which might cause the decrease of production cost, as well. Transition metals are generally applied as addition elements in age‐hardenable aluminium alloys (Baba 1968, 1970; Groma, Kovács‐Csetenyi Lang, Vitális, Lakner). Most of the investigations are dealing with phase transition but the physical, mechanical and corrosion properties are thoroughly studied, too. It is well known that transition metals are relatively less soluble in aluminium. The reactions in the binary systems of A‐transition metal are mostly of peritectic character and due to this fact the transition elements are acting as grain refiners, however, this effect is explained on basis of their electron structure, as well (Laminov, Samsonov). Investigations were carried out on the AlZn5Mg2 with the addition of 0.2 m% Zr and 0.15 m% Mo, 0.1 m% Zr + 0.1 m% Mo and 0.2 m% Zr + 0.2 m% Mo samples, respectively. The alloys were prepared on high purity base aluminium (5N), cast in copper mould, homogenized, scrapped and finally cold rolled.
