Revealing the recrystallization behavior and mechanism of this new alloy is of great significance to subsequent research. In this study, the Ni-36.6W-15Co ternary medium heavy alloy was solution-treated at 1100–1200 °C for different lengths of time. The grain size change, microstructure and texture evolution as well as twin development during recrystallization annealing were analyzed using SEM, EBSD and TEM techniques. The study found that complete recrystallization occurs at 1150 °C/60 min. In

The value of the activation energy Q1 of the studied alloys is 701 kJ/mol and the recrystallization process is relatively slow. By comparing the changes of microstructure and texture with superalloys, it is found that the recrystallization mechanism of the studied alloy is different from that of the superalloy. The development of annealing twins has a great influence on the recrystallization behavior and mechanism. The results show that the twin mechanism is considered as the dominant recrystallization mechanism of the studied alloy, although the formation and development of sub-grains appear in the early stage of recrystallization.
