Using a gas-atomized Ni59.35Nb34.45Sn6.2 metallic glassy alloy powder blended with Sn powder of various contents, Ni-Nb-Sn bulk metallic glassy matrix composites were fabricated by a microwave (MW)-induced sintering process in a single-mode 2.45 GHz MW applicator in a separated magnetic field. The Ni59.35Nb34.45Sn 6.2 glassy alloy powder and its mixed powders containing Sn particles could be heated well in the magnetic field. The addition of Sn particles promoted densification of the sintered Ni59.35Nb 34.45Sn6.2 metallic glassy powder. Bulk samples without crystallization of the glassy matrix and with good bonding state among the particles were achieved at a sintering temperature of 833 K.
