Properties and processing of precious metal alloys for biomedical applications

N. Baltzer and T. Copponnex,    Cendres+Métaux Group, Switzerland

Abstract:

The mechanical and physical properties of precious alloys facilitate their use for highly demanding applications. They are useful in medical applications because of their high resistance to corrosion, which makes them biocompatible. Important precious binary alloys are presented in this chapter, highlighting the basic structural mechanisms involved and activated during manufacture of products. The effects of precious elements and non precious metal traces are explained, and standard manufacturing processes and testing methods are outlined. A selection of commercial alloys used as materials ...
