Casting of Ti has been recently investigated in dentistry. The purpose of this study was to examine the alloying effect on the cast Ti. Metallurgical structures, mechanical properties, and in vitro corrosion resistance were, therefore, studied for cast Ti and for four selected cast Ti alloys such as Ti-6AI-4V, Ti-15V, Ti-20Cu, and Ti-30Pd. A "Castmatic" dental casting machine was utilized, which involved argon-arc melting and subsequent argon/vacuum-pressurized casting. The photomicrographs… CONTINUE READING
