Abstract

T1-6A1-4V is well known as a material used for artificial joints. However, this material has inferior wear corrosion characteristics. For this reason, surface modification was required. At present, wear corrosion characteristics were not fully understood comprehensively from both wear and corrosion behaviors. Therefore, in this study, wear corrosion characteristics of Ti-6Al-4V were evaluated comprehensively from both wear and corrosion characters of this material and some trials for improving wear corrosion characteristics by gas nitriding were conducted. As a result, wear co
