Yield of Binary Ti-Cu and Ti-Mn Alloys Produced via Powder Metallurgy
High strength, low density, good corrosion resistance and biocompatibility is the combination of properties that Ti and its alloys can provide for engineering applications. Its costs are the most important limiting factor for the widespread use of Ti. Cost reduction for Ti alloys can derive from the use of cheaper alloying elements as well as the use of alternative manufacturing techniques. In this study binary Ti-X alloys (where X = Cu or Mn) were formulated and produced using the conventional powder metallurgy route of pressing and sintering. These chemical elements were selected because they are β stabilisers and can be used to create α+β Ti alloys. The study shows that with the techniques and processing parameters used handable products without delamination can be pressed. Moreover, chemically homogenous materials with density and mechanical property values comparable to those of other wrought-equivalent Ti alloys produced via powder metallurgy were achieved.
