The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of temperature and time of homogenization treatment on the microstructure, distribution of alloying elements and hardness of the novel Co-based superalloy Co-7Al-7W-4Ti-2Ta. For this purpose, the specimens were first homogenized at 1250 and 1300 °C for 2, 4, 6 and 8 hours and then water-cooled. Subsequently, the specimens were subjected to hardness testing and microstructural examinations by optical and electron microscopy. The results showed that by increasing the homogenization temperature to 1300 °C, the porosity created by Ti oxidation and local melting of the Co-Al-Ti eutectic compounds led to a decrease in hardness to 90 Vickers. This phenomenon was due to high segregation of alloying elements in the cast structure. The intensity and destructive effects of this segregation were reduced by remelting of alloy. However, by homogenization at 1250 °C, no local melting of eutectic zones or porosity were observed in the specimens and a more uniform structure was obtained with increasing time. Minimum and maximum hardness values after homogenization at 1250°C were 348 and 406 Vickers, respectively. Moreover, the microstructure became more homogenous by increasing the homogenization treatment time at this temperature.
