In order to improve mechanical properties of roll cast 8011 aluminum alloy (AA 8011) by grain strengthening, and expand its application field, the effect of different annealing treating processes on mechanical properties and microstructures of cryogenic rolled AA 8011 was investigated. The roll cast AA 8011 was cryogenic rolled for six passes and then annealed. The annealing treatment was adopted at 100–300 °C for 1 h, and then the annealing treatment was adopted at 220 °C for 10–80 min. The microstructures of AA 8011 under roll cast and cryogenic rolled states were studied by using OM. The grain size was calculated by the Image-pro-plus 5.0. The microstructures of AA 8011 under annealing states were observed by using TEM and energy dispersive spectrum analysis. The results show that the second phase Al8Fe2Si appears in the cryogenic rolled AA 8011 after annealing treatment. When the dislocation moves in the grain, the dislocation plays a pinning role, which is conducive to grain refinement. The optical annealing treatment was treated at 220 °C for 40 min with optimal thermal stability. The ideal grain size is 1 μm, hardness is 65 HV, and tensile strength is 202 MPa. It is about 1.5 times of the roll cast AA 8011.
