Paper Title:
Densification and Microstructural Behaviour on the Sintering of Blended Elemental Ti-35Nb-7Zr-5Ta Alloy
  Abstract

Beta titanium alloys, e.g., are now the main target for medical materials. Ti-35Nb-7Zr- 5Ta alloy were manufactured by blended elemental (BE) powder method, which appears to be one of the most promising technique for titanium parts production at reduced cost. The process employs hydrided powders as raw materials with low production costs and oxygen content. Among the titanium alloys recently developed, Ti-35Nb-7Zr-5Ta is distinguished for presenting low modulus of elasticity, high mechanical resistance and superior biocompatibility. Samples were produced by mixing of initial metallic powders followed by uniaxial and cold isostatic pressing with subsequent densification by sintering among 800 at 1500 °C, in vacuum. Sintering behavior was studied by means of dilatometry. Sintered samples were characterized for phase composition, microstructure and microhardness by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and Vickers indentation, respectively. Density was measured by Archimedes method. In this work, an alternative blending technique (with planetary mill) was used. The samples presented a good densification and a totally β-type microstructure, with complete dissolution of alloying elements in the titanium matrix with the temperature increase with low pore content.
