Titanium aluminide powders of composition Ti-54%Al and Ti-48%Al-2%W were consolidated by hot isostatic pressing (HIP) in the temperature range 1025C to 1250C and the tensile properties of the latter alloy determined at ambient and elevated temperature (550C and 850C). The maximum ductilities obtained were 1.3% and 4.7% at room temperature and 850C respectively. The microstructures of as-HIP'ed and tensile deformed material were analyzed using optical and electron microscopy techniques. Tensile ductility is related to the homogeneity of deformation between prior dendritic and interdendritic regions. Tensile strength at room temperature and 550C is dependent on the HIP'ed grain size, while at the 850C temperature strength is independent of grain size. The best room temperature combination of strength and ductility is 505 MPa and 1.3% elongation, obtained by HIP'ing the ternary alloy at 1250C.
