Prototype of a medical wire made of newly developed biomedical titanium alloy

2006/05/31

The prototype of a medical wire made of newly developed biomedical titanium alloy, Ti-29Nb-13Ta-4.6Zr, was made toward practical use. Since this alloy consisting of only allergic- and toxic-free elements has low elastic modulus and good mechanical properties, it has been expected to be utilized for medical applications. This result was obtained as one of the activities of Titanomix Workshop, which was established in order to encourage the industry in Higashi Mikawa, Aichi pref., and was reported in a newspaper, Higashi Aichi Shinbun on May 8, 2006.
