The aim of the article was to identify and characterize the precipitates formed in the aluminum alloys with the addition of antimony. The performed investigation was on the casting aluminium alloy based on ENACAlMg5Si2Mn (ENAC-51500) used in the automotive industry with the addition of antimony in an amount of 0.2 % for the first sample and 1.2 % for the second one. The main research technique was scanning electron microscopy, in order to evaluate the morphology and precipitates in the investigated samples, the backscattered electrons were used. Performed research allowed to determine the effect of the addition of antimony on the morphology of formed precipitates.
