The effects of Sr addition on microstructure and mechanical properties of ADC12/nano Al2O3 composite has been studied. In this research ADC12 as a matrix was added by 0.3 vf% nano Al2O3 as a reinforcement and Al-5Sr varied from 0.00 wt% to 0.05 wt% to modify the eutectic structure of the matrix. The composites were further characterized both microstructural analysis and mechanical properties. The results showed that the intermetallic phases including β-Al5FeSi and Al2Cu were detected using scanning electron microscope and α-Al(Mn,Fe)Si or α-cubic phases was possible to form due to high content of Mn in the composites. The Mg2Si primary, binary, and ternary phases were detected in this composites by metallographic examination. Then, MgAl2O4 (spinnel) were found by XRD analysis. The higher of Sr content from 0,00 to 0.02 the lower SDAS formation from 15 μm to 14 μm as well as porosity content reduced from 4% to 3%. The ultimate tensile strength increased from 115 MPa to 137 MPa as well as in impact toughness from 0.016 J/mm2 to 0.025 J/mm2. The highest hardness and the lowest wear rate were obtained with the addition of 0.05 wt% Sr with 46 HRB and 1.04 10-5 mm3/m respectively due to the changed of chinese script became refined fibrous type.
