Paper Title:
Effects of Additional Elements on Structure, Mechanical Strength and Chemical Properties of Ni-Free Ti-Based Bulk Metallic Glasses for Biomaterials
  Abstract

We started investigation of new Ti-based bulk metallic glass (BMG) alloys with higher glass forming ability (GFA) for dental implants for medical market. These Ti-based BMG alloys do not contain Ni, Al and Be elements which are well known to be harmful for human body. In particular, cylindrical rod specimens of newly designed Ti-based BMG alloys with produced by copper mold casting exhibit compressive strength of above 1800 MPa. Ti-based BMG alloys also have high corrosion resistance that is passivated at the lower passive current densities of approximately 10-2Am-2 in 1 mass% lactic acid, 10-2~10-3Am-2 in PBS (-) at 310K which are lower than those of pure Titanium and Ti-6Al-4V alloy. These BMG alloys have high potentials to be applied as biomaterials in various forms, such as melt spun ribbons and cylindrical rods.
