Biomedical applications of titanium and its alloys
- 3.4k Downloads
Titanium alloys are considered to be the most attractive metallic materials for biomedical applications. Ti-6Al-4V has long been favored for biomedical applications. However, for permanent implant applications the alloy has a possible toxic effect resulting from released vanadium and aluminum. For this reason, vanadium-and aluminum-free alloys have been introduced for implant applications.
