This report will review the mechanical and microstructural properties of the refractory element rhenium (Re) deposited using Laser Additive Manufacturing (LAM). With useable structural strength over 2200 °C, existing applications up to 2760 °C, very high strength, ductility and chemical resistance, interest in Re is understandable. This study includes data about tensile properties including tensile data up to 1925 °C, fracture modes, fatigue and microstructure including deformation systems and potential applications of that information. The bulk mechanical test data will be correlated with nanoindentation and crystallographic examination. LAM properties are compared to the existing properties found in the literature for …
