Rapidly solidified and processed Al-6Fe-3MM (MM stands for Misch Metal) has been studied for microstructural characterization through optical microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction analysis. It has been shown that the RS ribbons of this alloy could be consolidated and processed through extrusion, forging and hot rolling and that the microstructures are stable up to 300°C.
