Bulk billets from commercial ingots of the alloy 1570C with different size of aluminides of transition metals were subjected to severe deformation up to the equivalent strain e~24 via multi-step isothermal forging (MIF) with an inter-step temperature decrease from 325 to 175 °C. The high potential of MIF to produce UFG billets with enhanced balance of static and fatigue properties has been demonstrated. The role of precipitates of aluminides of transition metals and regimes of the MIF in the structure of the alloy and for the control of properties is discussed.
