The structures and compositions of Ti and Zr rich phases in ternary Al-Ti-Zr and quaternary Al-Si-Ti-Zr systems were investigated by energy dispersive spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. The additions of Ti and Zr were changed. It was found that Ti and Zr can replace each other in the Ti and Zr rich phases of Al-(Si-)Ti-Zr alloys. Compositions of the phases have been measured as a function of Ti and Zr additions. The content of Ti (Zr) in the phases increases with its addition in the alloys. Besides, the increase of Ti content can result in a decrease of lattice parameters. Microhardness of the phases in Al-18Si-xTi-yZr alloys changes with composition evolution. Moreover, the microhardness is higher than that of the intermetallics of ternary Al-Si-Ti and Al-Si-Zr alloys, due to the distortion of crystal structure caused by the replacement of Ti and Zr.
