dc.description.abstract The Ti-6Al-7Nb alloy was obtained using the blending elemental approach with a master alloy and elemental titanium powders. Both the elemental titanium and the Ti-6Al-7Nb powders were characterised using X-ray diffraction, differential thermal analysis and dilatometry. The powders were processed using the conventional powder metallurgy route that includes uniaxial pressing and sintering. The trend of the relative density with the sintering temperature and the microstructural evolution of the materials sintered at different temperatures were analysed using scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction. A minimum sintering temperature of 1200 °C has to be used to ensure the homogenisation of the alloying elements and to obtain a pore structure composed of spherical pores. The sintered samples achieve relative density values that are typical for powder metallurgy titanium and no intermetallic phases were detected. Mechanical properties comparable to those specified for wrought Ti-6Al-7Nb medical devices are normally obtained. Therefore, the produced materials are promising candidates for load bearing applications as implant materials.
