The application of mixed powders with different mass fraction on laser additive repairing (LAR) can be an effective way to guarantee the performance and functionality of repaired part in time. A convenient and feasible approach is presented to repair TA15 forgings by employing Ti6Al4V-xTA15 mixed powders in this paper. The performance compatibility of Ti6Al4V-xTA15 powders from the aspects of microhardness, tensile property, heat capacity, thermal expansion coefficient and corrosion resistance with the TA15 forgings was fully investigated. The primary α laths were refined and the volume fraction of the secondary α phase was increased by increasing the mass fraction of TA15 in the mixed Ti6Al4V-xTA15 powders, leading to varied performances. In conclusion, the mixed Ti6Al4V-70%TA15 (x=70%) powders is the most suitable candidate and is recommended as the raw material for LAR of TA15 forgings based on overall consideration of the compatibility calculations of the laser repaired zone with the wrought substrate zone.
