Thermo-physical behavior of some Zr-based metallic glasses prepared by different molten quenching temperatures was studied by Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) measurements. The characteristic thermo-physical properties are normally used for evaluating the glass-forming ability (GFA) of metallic glasses. Our results show that the glass transition temperature, crystallization temperature and supercooled liquid region of these metallic glasses increased with increasing the molten quenching temperature. Their glass-forming abilities were discussed in terms of the GFA criterion γ and the reduced glass transition temperature, Trg, using these thermo-physical properties. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
