Main results

The series of AlxNbCrMoV (x: 0; 0.1; 0.5 and 1) high-entropy alloys were fabricated by high-energy planetary ball milling with combination of sintered by hot isostatic pressing (HIP) technique using low carbon steel cans or spark plasma sintering (SPS).
The fabricated HEA samples were indicated a body-center cubic single phase with the grain size in the range of 2.5 to 3.5 µm. As the Al content increases, the hardness and oxidation resistance of the samples increased.
By hot isostatic pressing or spark plasma sintering techniques, the AlxNbCrMoV high entropy alloys have a real density close to the theoretical density.

From the research results obtained above, which is shown that high entropy materials have potential in practical applications. However, more research is needed, especially measurements at high temperatures to evaluate the heat resistance to guide practical applications. Therefore, the collective proposes to consider to be able to continue developing this research direction.
