Summary of "Development of Cu-bearing powder metallurgy Ti alloys for biomedical applications."

Cu-bearing Ti alloys could be used as structural biomedical materials where the releasing of Cu ions is beneficial to lower infection incidences associated with surgical implants. The manufacturing of these alloys via powder metallurgy techniques can lower the production costs. In this study three ternary Cu-bearing Ti-xAl-yCu alloys were produced using conventional powder metallurgy. The mechanical properties increase with the amount of alloying elements. Samples of each composition were also forged to clarify the effect of subjecting them to hot deformation. Forging the samples improved the strength of the alloys due to the reduction of porosity and the refinement of the microstructural features. It is found that Ti-2Al-1Cu is the most ductile, Ti-6Al-4Cu is the strongest and Ti-10Al-5Cu has a purely elastic behaviour. Some of these powder metallurgy Ti-xAl-yCu alloys have better overall mechanical behaviour than their cast counterparts and therefore are valuable alternative to produce medical and dental implants with improved properties and reduced cost.
