Recently, a number of amorphous alloys that possess high glass-forming ability and a wide supercooled liquid region before crystallization have been discovered. Especially, bulk metallic glasses, which are made in bulk form with a thickness of ∼10 mm at slow cooling rates of the order of 1-100 K/s, have been noted as an industrial application. Hence the welding of bulk metallic glasses to other materials is very important. Explosive welding of most popular Zr41.2Ti13.8Cu10Ni12.5Be 22.5 bulk metallic glass to crystalline pure Ti and SUS304 plates is investigated in this paper. The BMGs was found to retain the amorphous structure and the original mechanical properties. The sound bonding with other materials is expected to push forward the application of bulk metallic glass for industrial usage.
