A light-weight high-entropy alloy Al20Be20Fe10Si15Ti35
A light-weight high-entropy alloy (LWHEA) Al20Be20Fe10Si15Ti35 has been developed to have unique mechanical properties and oxidation resistance. One major and two minor phases are observed in the as-cast microstructure. The density of the alloy is 3.91 g cm−3, and its hardness is HV 911, which is higher than quartz. The hardness and hardness to density ratio are the highest of all light-weight alloys reported before. In addition, it has excellent oxidation resistance at 700°C and 900°C, which far exceeds that of Ti-6Al-4V. Thus, the combination of properties is promising for high-temperature applications, which require light weight, wear-resistant and oxidation-resistant components.
