The FeAl intermetallics compounds bulks were fabricated by hot-pressing process. The FeAl intermetallics compounds powders were fabricated by mechanical alloying and heat treatment process. The phase composition and microstructure of the FeAl intermetallics compounds powders produced by mechanical alloying and heat treatment were investigated. The phase composition and microstructure of the FeAl intermetallics compounds bulks fabricated by hot-pressing process were investigated. The XRD patterns results showed that the Fe-Al intermetallics compounds powders were fabricated by mechanical alloying for 60h. The FeAl intermetallics compounds powders were fabricated by heat treatment process at 800oC, 900oC and 1000oC. The microstructure showed that the mean particles sizes of the Fe-Al intermetallics compounds powders produced by mechanical alloying decreased remarkably with the increase of milling time. The microstructure showed that the mean particles size of the Fe-Al intermetallics compounds powders produced by mechanical alloying and heat treatment was rather fine and about 4-5μm. The FeAl intermetallics compounds bulks were fabricated by hot-pressing process at 1100oC for 2h under the pressure of 35MPa. The XRD patterns results showed that there existed the FeAl intermetallics compounds phase in sintered bulks. The FeAl intermetallics compounds bulks exhibited the homogenous and compact microstructure. The mean particles size of the FeAl intermetallics compounds was about 2-3μm. The FeAl intermetallics compounds bulks exhibited the high relative density. The FeAl intermetallics compounds bulks with the high relative density were fabricated by hot-pressing process.
