Equal Channel Angular Pressing (ECAP) is currently one of the most popular methods for fabricating Ultra-Fine Grained (UFG) materials. In this study, mechanical properties of the 60-40 two phase brass processed were evaluated by ECAP. The samples were repeatedly ECAP-ed to strains as high as 2 at a temperature of 350 ◦C using route C. The microstructure of the samples showed that small grains were formed in the boundaries which indicates the occurrence of recrystallization in different passes. Observation of slip trace in the microstructure of the samples showed that even in such alloy with a low-stacking fault energy, dislocations slip trigger the deformation. Investigation of mechanical properties showed that with increasing the number of passes, tensile strength, microhardness and ducility improved at the same time.
