The characterized alloy reached values of yield strength, ultimate tensile strength and elongation to failure equal to 166 ± 2 MPa, 211 ± 1 MPa and 35 ± 1%, respectively. Simultaneous addition of both alloying elements contributed to solid solution strengthening, intermetallic Zr-rich phase formation, and effective grain refinement.
