Alloys based on ordered intermetallic compounds constitute a unique class of metallic material that form long-range ordered crystal structures below a critical temperature. Aluminides, a unique class of ordered intermetallic materials, possesses many attributes like low densities, high melting points, and good high-temperature strength that make them an attractive material for high-temperature structural application. This article discusses the properties, chemical composition, corrosion resistance, processing, fabrication, alloying effects and crystallographic data of nickel aluminides (Ni3Al and NiAl), iron aluminides (Fe3Al and FeAl) and titanium aluminides (alpha-2 alloys, orthorhombic alloys, and gamma alloys).
