Hot-isostatic-pressing ('HIPping') of powder is an effective manufacturing technique: it allows the production of complex parts to very near net-shape and is therefore highly material-efficient. In this work, Ti-5Al-5Mo-5V-3Cr ('Ti-5553'), a high-strength metastable beta Ti alloy, was HIPped from powder to produce monolithic parts. The effects of powder production route, alloy composition and HIPping conditions on the microstructure and properties of the HIPped Ti-5553 were assessed. The difference between gas atomised powders and PREP powders has been studied, together with the influence of minor carbon addition on the HIPped microstructure. Mechanical testing showed the effect of these different microstructures on tensile strength, fatigue and fracture toughness. Mechanical properties were often found to be comparable to those of Ti-5553 alloy produced from ingot. The significance of the results on the viability of HIPped beta Ti alloys is discussed.
