- Titanium, a relatively new engineering metal, has been employed principally in high demanding industries due to its high final cost and it is well known for its biocompatibility. Powder metallurgy (PM) techniques could offer the possibility to reduce the production cost without paying it in terms of mechanical properties, thanks to their intrinsic advantages. In this study the Ti-3Al-2.5V titanium alloy was produced considering two powder production routes and sintered under different temperatures in order to address their feasibility as alternative to the wrought alloy. The results indicate that PM Ti-3Al-2.5V alloys studied have comparable mechanical behaviour as their counterpart obtained by conventional metallurgy and, therefore, are potential candidates to fabricate cheaper titanium products for structural applications as well as biomedical devices. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
