Gas-atomized Ni525Nb10Zr15Ti 15Pt75 metallic glassy alloy powders were consolidated by a spark plasma sintering (SPS) process. The densification behavior during the SPS process as well as the structure, thermal stability and mechanical properties of the sintered specimens were investigated. The glassy alloy powders were densified rapidly when the temperature exceeded about 740 K. The density of the sintered specimens increased with an increase in sintering temperature. The specimens with full densification and no crystallization were obtained by the SPS process at a sintering temperature of 773 K with a loading pressure of 600 MPa. The sintered specimens exhibit high-strength and can meet large-size requirement.
