TiB whisker reinforced Ti6Al4V (TiBw/Ti64) composites with a novel network reinforcement architecture have emerged due to their superior combination of superior room temperature tensile properties. In the present study, their superior high temperature tensile properties and special strengthening mechanisms were further investigated. The maximum service temperature of the TiBw/Ti64 composites can be increased to 600 °C while retaining the strength of the monolithic Ti64 alloy the alloy at 400 °C. This is attributed to the network boundary strengthening mechanism as elucidated by the microstructure–property–fractographic analysis.
