Microstructures and deformation behavior of γ/γ' Co-Al-W single-crystals and γ'-Co3(Al,W) polycrystals have been investigated. Single crystals with the γ/γ' two-phase microstructure with a large volume fraction of the γ' phase are obtained by the Bridgman method. These single crystals exhibit anomalies in yield stress in compression at temperatures above 700 °C. Polycrystalline Co3(Al,W) alloys can be rolled in ambient atmosphere such that the nominal thickness was reduced by 40%. The values of tensile elongation obtained for the polycrystalline Co3(Al,W) alloys in air is slightly smaller than that obtained in vacuum, indicating that the Co3(Al,W) alloys are not severely susceptible to the environmental embrittlement in air.
