Recently, many studies have been carried out to process on the purpose of lightness in a transport parts because of the saving energy, the environmental problem. The cast-forging process can be expected to lower costs without decreasing the mechanical properties. So, the finest microstructure is needed to get for applying the cast-forging process with Al-Si alloy because the microstructure affects to the cast-forging process. For refinement treatment of eutectic Si and Al solid-solution phase, Sr and TiB were added in Al-Si alloys. The finest microstructure could be observed when 0.075 wt.%Sr and 0.1 wt.%TiB were added respectively. In this case, tensile strength and elongation much more increased than as casting. After high temperature deformation simulation test with grain refinement specimens was carried out, about 70N per unit area(mm²) of specimen was confirmed. After hot forging, tensile strength and elongation were increased. It was considered because casting defect was removed by compressive working.
