The hot compression deformation behavior of Cu–6.0Ni–1.0Si–0.5Al–0.15 Mg–0.1Cr alloy with high strength, high stress relaxation resistance and good electrical conductivity was investigated using a Gleeble1500 thermal–mechanical simulator at temperatures ranging from 700 to 900 °C and strain rates ranging from 0.001 to 1 s−1. Working hardening, dynamic recovery and dynamic recrystallization play important roles to affect the plastic deformation behavior of the alloy. According to the stress–strain data, constitutive equation has been carried out and the hot compression deformation activation energy is 854.73 kJ/mol. Hot processing map was established on the basis of dynamic material model theories, and Prasad instability criterion indicates that the appropriate hot processing temperature range and strain rate range for hot deformation were 850~875 °C and 0.001~0.01 s−1, which agreed well with the hot rolling experimentation results.
