Article Preview

Wear behavior of titanium materials such as C.P.Ti, Ti-6Al-4V and Ti-6Al-7Nb, was studied in simulated body fluids by means of the pin-on-disk type wear testing. The mass loss in wear testing increased with increasing the sliding distance. The a+b type titanium alloys, Ti-6Al-4V and Ti-6Al-7Nb, exhibited higher wear resistance than the C.P.Ti. Average size of the wear debris was 4.5 µm and 3.7 µm for C.P.Ti and the a+b type titanium alloys, respectively. The elution of metallic constituents into 1 mass% lactic acid solution was detected after the wear test.
