Hydrostatic Extrusion (HE) as one of the methods of grain refinement of metallic materials down to the nanometric scale [1-4]. The main features of this method are large strain and very high strain rates (exceeding than 104 s-1). HE also offers the opportunity to obtain bulk materials in a variety of forms (rods and wires of complex cross-sections, small tubes). HE processing proved to be an efficient way to reduce the grain size in Ti. This grain refinement resulted in significantly improved mechanical properties.
