The effect of Zr addition on the microstructure, cold workability and hardness of low-cost Ti-14Mn alloy was investigated. A set of alloys with1.5, 3 and6%wt. Zr were produced by arc melting. The alloys were subjected to solution heat treatment at 900 ˚C.Zr seems working as weak β-stabilizer in this Ti-14Mn-xZr alloy system. The effect of Zr-content on the cold workability was assessed.The cold workability of the Ti-14Mn-xZr alloys (withZr up to 6%) is higher than 90% reduction ration. The hardness slightly increased with the increase ofZr-content in Ti-14Mn-xZr alloys in both solution treated and cold rolled conditions.
