Ductile ultrafine-grained composites in Ti66Nb18Cu6.4Ni6.1Al3.5 alloy with high Nb/Ti ratio were fabricated by spark plasma sintering and crystallization of amorphous phase. Microstructure observations shows that all alloys encompass body-centered cubic β-Ti and face-centered cubic (Cu, Ni)-Ti2 regions but display different microstructures. The alloys exhibit a high fracture strength as high as 2365 MPa as well as distinct fracture strain of ∼7.6%. The results obtained provide a promising method for fabrication of two-phase composites with good combination of strength and ductility by powder metallurgy.
