In the present work, Al-Mg-Mn-Si alloy (5483) in as received state and after severe plastic deformation process was used. The plastic deformation was obtained by the hydroextrusion, so three different true strain values had been received correspondingly 1.39, 2.77 and 3.79. All specimens were subjected to the tensile tests with strain ratio 8,3*10-4 s-1. The investigated material revealed an instability of plastic deformation in the form of serration on stress-strain curves (so called Portevin- Le Chatelier effect). It is noticeable that the grain size reduction effects on the character of the instability.
