A Ti40Zr25Cu12Ni3Be20 bulk metallic glass (BMG) was welded to a crystalline aluminum by the parallel plate explosive welding method. Experimental evidence and numerical simulation show that atomic-scale bonding between the BMG and the crystalline aluminum can be achieved, and the weldment on the BMG side can retain its amorphous state without any indication of crystallization in the welding process. Nanoindentation tests reveal that the interface of the explosive joints exhibits a significant increase in hardness compared to the matrix on its two sides. The joining of BMG and crystalline materials opens a window to the applications of BMGs in engineering.
