The microstructures and mechanical properties of three powder metallurgy Ti-48Al-2Cr- 2Nb-xW alloys (where x=0, 0.5, and 1 atomic percent (at.%)) are presented. The results indicate that a solution heat treatment combined with controlled cooling generate a fully lamellar (FL) microstructure without the formation of detrimental Widmanstätten or massively transformed γ phases. Aging causes coarsening of the FL microstructure in the alloys containing 0%W and 0.5%W, while almost no coarsening occurs in the 1%W sample. The addition of W to the base composition results in the formation of precipitates at the lamellar interfaces and grain boundaries during aging which helps stabilize the FL microstructure. The amount of W and the aging time affect the room temperature hardness values and tensile properties.
