AbstractA CoCrFeNiMnTi0.1 high-entropy alloy (HEA) was processed by high-pressure torsion (HPT) followed by postdeformation annealing (PDA) at 200–900 °C. Microstructural evaluations revealed that the initial and HPTprocessed microstructures consisted of a single fcc phase and there was no evidence for decomposition during severe plastic deformation. However, PDA at temperatures below 900 °C promoted the formation of a multiphase microstructure containing new precipitates and significant grain coarsening occurred after PDA at> 800 °C due to a dissolution of the precipitates. PDA at 800 °C for 60 min led to very good mechanical properties with an ultimate tensile strength (UTS) and elongation to failure of> 1000 MPa and ~ 40%, respectively. The results demonstrate that the minor addition of Ti to the CoCrFeNiMn alloy has no direct effect on the strengthening mechanisms but nevertheless this addition significantly increases the thermal stability of the precipitates and these precipitates are effective in minimizing grain coarsening. Therefore, the Ti addition plays an important role in strengthening the HEA.
