The heat treatment effect of a cast shape memory alloy (SMA) from self-propagating high temperature synthesis (SHS) ingot was investigated. The composition of SHS ingot was Ti-50.8at%Ni. DSC and Tensile test specimens were cast by lost-wax process from SHS ingot. The heat treatment conditions were 400°C-60min., 500°C-60min. and 600°C-60min. for DSC and 400°C-60min. and 500°C-60min. for tensile test. Transformation temperatures were measured by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Mechanical properties were measured by a tensile test at several temperatures. The effects of heat treatment temperatures were same as a general TiNi wire material.
