The influence of prior deformation in spinodally decomposing Co-Ti, Co-Ti-Nb and Co-Ti-Fe alloys has been investigated using transmission electron microscopy and hardness isotherms. Deformation seems to have an influence on the decomposition sequence in Co-3% Ti alloy; however, it does not affect the sequence of transformations in the ternary alloys. The ternary alloys show peak hardness after deformation and subsequent annealing at 873 K. The peak hardness of the deformed alloys occurred quite early, compared with the undeformed alloys.
