The paper deals with melting of titanium and chromium metal powders in plasma of abnormal glow discharge which results in the formation of the hexagonal С36 Laves phase compound TiCr2 with a = 4.928 Å and c = 15.983 Å lattice parameters. The hydrogenation–dehydrogenation process is used to prepare the powder of C36 Laves phase intermetallic compound TiCr. The hydrogenation–dehydrogenation process is performed at 100°C, 2 atm hydrogen pressure and 30 min ageing followed by vacuum cooling. The prepared metal powder is characterized by rounded lamellar and coarse particles 6 ± 2 μm and 21 ± 7 μm in size, respectively.
