Ti-20Al-22Nb (at%) alloys were prepared by investment casting. The microstructures and tensile properties at room temperature of as-cast, hot isostatic pressed and annealed alloys were analyzed. The results show that solidified alloy consists of β matrix, fine acicular α2 phase and a small amount of O phase. The as-cast alloy has course widmanstatten structure. Besides, the phase transformation inside original β/B2 grain is incomplete owing to non-equilibrium solidification. Loose defect and inhomogeneity of microstructures cause low plasticity of the material. The loose defects are eliminated by hot isostatic pressing in the two-phase region of α2+β/B2, acicular α2 phase precipitates fully in the original grains, the microstructure homogeneity improves, and the elongation of the alloy increases from 2% to 5%. After annealing treatment in the α2+/B2+O three-phase region, the supersaturated β phase transforms to the equilibrium state. Through the peritectoid transformation of β/B2+α2→O, ring-shaped O phase forms around needle-shaped α2 phase, and the elongation further increases to 11%.
