The problems of this paper relate to a possibility to affect the structure and properties of new alloys with an intermetallic phase matrix of the Fe-Al system by improvements in casting and hot plastic working processes. The studies were focused on selection of an optimum chemical composition and parameters of the casting and heat treatment processes for further hot plastic working process. The primary goal was to obtain semifinished products in the forms of sheets and bars with specified set of mechanical and physical properties. The works included several selected alloys with various Al content and variable contents of alloying elements influencing the formation of intermetallic phases. A series of characteristics of mechanical, physical, and chemical properties of alloys containing 28 and 38% of Al were developed. The result of the work consists in the development of a technology for hot forming of flat and round products.
