Recent studies have shown that amorphous alloys from Al-based ternary systems, containing lanthanide metal and late transition metal can be fabricated. Such materials are characterized by good mechanical properties. The most common way of production those alloys is melt spinning, giving a ribbon as a final product. It is possible to replace lanthanide metal by mischmetal. The mischmetal used in this study contains: Ce-50,3 % at., La-43,5 % at, Pr-5,9 % at., Nd-0,3 % at. This is a way to reduce the costs of the raw materials because Mm is several times cheaper than pure lanthanide elements.
