This paper presents comparative review of experimental and thermodynamic assessment of ternary Ag-Sb-Zn system. Isothermal section of the Ag-Sb-Zn system at 300 degrees C has been calculated by CALPHAD method using thermodynamic parameters from literature. Microstructural analysis of a number of alloys was carried out by scanning electron microscopy and optical microscopy, whereas chemical composition of observed phases was analyzed using energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. Hardness of selected alloys from four vertical sections was determined using Brinell hardness test and additionally by micro Vickers hardness test. Electrical conductivity of a number of alloys in the ternary Ag-Sb-Zn system was experimentally determined. Good overall agreement between experimental and calculated values was obtained.
