Paper Title:
Mechanical Property and Microstructure of Ti-Ta-Ag Alloy for Biomedical Applications
  Abstract

Ti and some of its alloys (e.g. Ti–6Al–4V alloy) have become the metals of choice for the endosseous parts of presently available dental implants. In the present study, Ti-Ta-Ag alloys with a different Ag content were prepared using vacuum sintering (VS) and spark plasma sintering (SPS) process. The microstructure and mechanical properties of the Ti-Ta-Ag alloys were investigated. The results show that dense Ti-Ta-Ag alloys prepared using the SPS process exhibit high hardness and a suitable elastic modulus for implant materials for load-bearing applications. The effect of preparation methods on the microstructure of Ti-Ta-Ag alloys is discussed.
