For an Al-Mn alloy heat exchanger fin stocks which continuous casting was simulated in, the effects of Si and Zr addition on strength and recrystallized grain structures after brazing heat treatment were investigated. As a result of tensile test, pre-brazed tensile strength was increased with increasing Si and Zr contents in the Al-Mn alloy. On the other hands, Zr addition have a small effect on post-brazed tensile strength regardless of Si contents. This was attributed the dissolution of Al3Zr or (Al,Si)3Zr precipitates during brazing heat treatment. Post-brazed grain structure were refined with increasing Si contents. Meanwhile, Zr addition led to larger post-brazed grain structures. It was found that Al3Zr or (Al,Si)3Zr precipitated during intermediate annealing played to major role in retarding recrystallization during brazing heat treatment.
