Titanium alloys, such as Ti-6Al-4V alloy, fabricated by additive manufacturing processes is a winning combination in the aeronautic field. Indeed, the high specific mechanical properties of titanium alloys with the optimized design of parts allowed by additive manufacturing should allow aircraft weight reduction. But, the long term use of Ti-6Al-4V alloy is limited to 315 °C due to high oxidation kinetics above this temperature . The formation of an oxygen diffusion zone in the metal and an oxide layer above it may reduce the durability of titanium parts leading to premature failure [2, 3]. In this study, Ti-6Al-4V alloy was fabricated by Electron Beam Melting (EBM). As built microstructure evolutions after Hot Isostatic Pressure (HIP) treatment at 920 °C and 1000 bar for 2h were investigated. As built microstructure of Ti-6Al-4V fabricated by EBM was composed of Ti-α laths in a Ti-β matrix. High temperature oxidation of Ti-6Al-4V alloy at 600 °C of as-built and HIP-ed microstructures was studied. This temperature was chosen to increase oxidation kinetics and to study the influence of oxidation on tensile mechanical properties. In parallel, two other oxidation temperatures, i.e. 500 °C and 550°C allowed to access to the effect of temperature on long-term oxidation.
