    The present paper provides details on the thermomechanical treatment of chromium-nickel alloys with high content of chromium, which leads to considerable improvement of their mechanical properties. The investigated alloys were prepared from Cr-Ni powder mixtures containing 50% and 80% of chromium in mass. They were formed by a particular sequence of cold and hot isostatic pressing. The as-sintered compacts were essentially brittle at room temperature, while they have exhibited considerable ductility after the special thermomechanical treatments. The treatment consisted of a sequence of repeated rolling and annealing operations, which is relatively simple and applicable in the industrial production. It is found that the treatments led to a more homogeneous, better alloyed structure and enhanced interdiffusion of the component metals.
