The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of adding the Al-Ti-B grain refiner to the aluminum twin roll casting. The authors analyzed the microstructure of the as-cast strip produced by the twin roll casting based on several casting conditions. The results showed that the amount of the TiB2 particles and the temperature gradient in the solidification area are the key factors for enhancing the effect of the grain refining. Additionally, this study simulated the behavior of the TiB2 particles in the aluminum melt. The temperature distribution of the aluminum between the twin rolls was also calculated. The authors clarified the relationship between the grain refiner particles and the temperature gradient for the grain refining effect during the twin roll casting.
