The spark plasma sintering (SPS) microstructure and high temperature oxidation behavior of TiH2-45Al-0.2Si-5Nb(at.%) alloy were investigated.Emphasis was placed on the effect of SPS microstructures, obtained by blend powder and mechanical alloying powder. The mass gain due to oxidation was measured using an electro balance. The oxide layers as well as its micro-structure were examined by SEM and EDS, and XRD. The results show that sintered microstructure of blend powder is composed of fully lamellar TiAl/ Ti3Al phase, and that of the mechanical alloying powder is composed of finer granular TiAl/Ti3Al phase. The latter oxidation rate is lower, and forms continuous mixed oxide layer of Al2O3 and TiO2. Both SPS microstructure of blend powder and mechanical alloying powder are superior in oxidation behavior to ordinary vacuum sintering.
