Multiple extrusion of Al-4Mg-1Zr (wt.%) is presented as a severe plastic deformation technique to develop an ultra-fine grained material, using rapidly solidified needles as a feedstock. After each extrusion pass the microstructure is refined, the primary Al3Zr precipitates are broken down and <50-nm-scale cubic Al3Zr are precipitated from solution. Recovery dominates the initial passes with recrystallisation becoming dominant during later passes, but the grains remain at the sub-mu m scale. Interestingly, the yield stress and the ultimate strength increased significantly after the first pass, and then decreased any strength increment gained from the grain refinement was offset by coarsening of the metastable nano-scale Al3Zr dispersoids.
