The physical bases of hydrogenated titanium powders application in blended elemental powder metallurgy (BEPM) of titanium alloys were earlier developed. Hydrogen as temporary alloying addition for titanium strongly affects diffusion processes upon transformation of powder blends into alloys ensuring production of α+β and metastable β titanium alloys which mechanical properties meet standard requirements. At the same time, synthesis of metastable β alloys is complicated by a big amount of alloying elements which diffusion redistribution upon sintering has a strong impact on microstructure evolution.
In present study BEPM hydride approach was expanded for production of biocompatible low modulus Ti-Zr-Nb and Ti-Zr-Nb-Ta alloys having BCC structure which are attractive materials for medical application. The alloys of prescribed compositions were produced using various starting powders, including TiH2, ZrH2, hydrogenated niobium, tantalum and Ti-Nb master alloys. Peculiarities of volume changes of multicomponent powder blends on dehydrogenation were investigated. The specific volume changes of powder components during dehydrogenation affect densification kinetic of powder blends and microstructure of as-sintered alloys.
