Research on the Intermetallic Compounds Formation in a Ni-Ti Alloy Obtained through Powder Metallurgy Specific Methods
NiTi alloys, due to the special properties they posses, good corrosion resistance, biocompatibility, and shape memory, are used successfully in the medical field. The paper presents research concerning the elaboration of the NiTi alloy in the form of spherical shape powder with hollow particles. This type of powder would be the raw material for fabricating light weight products like prosthesis or surgical implants. The aim of the research was to elaborate this type of powder and determine the alloy’s phases in correlation with the need of obtaining a specific particle shape. Along with these aspects it was attempted to form different testing samples through sintering operations.
