|Title:||Corrosion behaviour of heat treated boron free and boron containing Ti-13Zr-13Nb (wt%) alloy in simulated body fluid|
|Abstract:||The corrosion behaviour of heat treated Ti-13Zr-13Nb (TZN) and Ti-13Zr-13Nb-0.5B (TZNB) alloys in Hank's solution has been investigated. The microstructure of the heat treated TZN alloy consisted of ?, ? or martensite. Addition of boron to TZN alloy led to the formation of dispersed TiB particles and modification of microstructure. In general, the furnace cooled TZN sample showed lower corrosion potential (Ecorr) than the air cooled sample. Aging of water quenched samples decreased the Ecorr value. The passive current density of TZN samples varied within a narrow range. Presence of boron in TZN alloy decreased the corrosion potential and substantially increased the passive current density. Results showed that boron deteriorated the corrosion resistance of TZN alloy. � Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2011.|
