To The microhardness measurements and tensile tests of small samples were used to determine the mechanical properties of UFG samples. It was found that a uniform structure with an average grain size of 210 nm processed by HPT lead to high microhardness equal to 100 HV. Investigations of thermal stability demonstrated that additional heat treatment of the UFG samples at 250 oC provides good combination of high strength of 245 MPa and ductility of 4%.
