Abstract

Structure, density, water-absorbing ability, open porosity, and corrosion behavior of bulk specimens synthesized from Ti-Ni powder blends by the method of selective laser sintering were studied experimentally. It was shown that the sintered products have a developed porosity (to 40%) with a characteristic structural size of 2-2.5 mm, a low density (about 3.3-4.1 g/cm3), and high passivation susceptibility in acid and alkaline, media. The potential of using such specimens as implants is discussed.
