Microstructure and properties of Cu1-xZn1-yAl1-z ranging through (0.29<X<0.30; 0.74<Y<0.75; and 0.83<Z<0.96) alloys obtained by the self- propagating high-temperature synthesis (SHS) were examined. The microstructural and mechanical properties were examined, respectively by X-ray diffraction, tensile tests and Brinell hardness and at last by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The obtained results showed that the modification of composition lead to the formation of new phases. Therefore, this microstructure affects strongly the mechanical properties of the selected samples.
