Irregular flakes prepared from ∼ 50 μm thick melt spun ribbons of an amorphous Markomet 1064 alloy (Ni_(55•8)Mo_(25•7)B_(8•8)) were consolidated by shock waves produced from stainless steel flyer plate impact in the 0.9 to 1.4 Km/s velocity range. Recovered samples were observed to have a bulk density of 8.9±.2 g/cm^3. The compacts remained amorphous for shock energies of less than 450 KJ/Kg. Metallographs indicate that moderately good interparticle bonding can be achieved with shock waves at stress levels below those which can induce recrystallization from shock heating.
