  • Publication number: 20200277687
    Abstract: Provided is a heat-resistant titanium (Ti) alloy member having excellent mechanical characteristics and oxidation resistance at high temperatures and having less mechanical anisotropy, a method for producing such a titanium alloy member, and a product including such an alloy member. A titanium-based alloy member includes titanium (Ti) as a major element and at least 0.5 to 2.0 mass % of boron (B) and has a dispersion of fiber-like TiB particles precipitated in a polycrystal matrix phase, the TiB particles each having a long axis of 1 to 10 ?m and a short axis of 0.01 to 0.5 ?m or less and having an aspect ratio of 2 to 1000, the TiB particles precipitating in a crystallographically random direction in each of crystal grains of the matrix phase.
