Research Paper


In this study, the sintering properties of Ti-6Al-4V-xMo powder prepared by an addition of Mo to Ti-6Al-4V scraps and subsequent pulverization were investigated. As the content of Mo added to Ti-6Al-4V scraps as a β stabilizer increased, the weight ratio of the α and β stabilizers in the Ti-6Al-4V-xMo changed and the original weight ratio of 6:4 varied to 5.71:8.57 when 5 wt% xMo was added. In order to compare the difference in properties of Ti-6Al-4V-xMo ingots with sintered bodies of the Ti-6Al-4V-xMo powder, we prepared sintered bodies from Ti-6Al-4V-xMo powder with an O content of about 5000 ppm and 325 mesh size. As a result, it was found that the sintered bodies of Ti-6Al-4V-xMo powder showed different properties of density and micro hardness compared to the Ti-6Al-4V-xMo ingots. These differences can be explained by the larger specific surface area of the sintered bodies, which formed a porous oxide layer on the surface due to the increase of Mo in the β zone of the Ti-6Al-4V alloys.
