In this study, Al-8%Ti alloy was produced by mechanical alloying. The produced powders were cold pressed at 630 MPa and synthesized at 600A degrees C for 12 and 24 h under argon gas atmosphere. After synthesis processes, the specimens were examined by SEM, XRD, and hardness tests. Wear tests were carried out under dry sliding conditions using a pin-on-disk type machine at a constant load of 30 N and a sliding speed of 1 m/sec. Total sliding distances were selected as 500, 1000, 1500, and 2000 m. The experimental results showed that the hardness and density of Al-%8Ti alloy increased with increasing synthesis time. It was also observed that volume reduction increased with increasing sliding distance and decreased with increasing synthesis time.
