The structure and mechanical properties of Al-based alloy 2024 after high-pressure torsion (HPT) was investigated. Alloy 2024 with homogeneous structure and grain size about 70 nm was obtained using HPT at 6 GPa pressure and 5 turns of anvils at room temperature. The nanostructured alloy at room temperature demonstrated very high UTS above 1100 MPa, and superplastic behavior at temperature higher then 300С. The microhardness of nanostructured alloy after superplastic deformation (1.5 GPa) was more than after standard treatment of coarse-grained alloy (1.2 GPa). The influence parameters of HPT and heat treatment on structure and deformation behavior of alloy were studied.
