Ti15Mo alloy is a beta titanium alloy intended for biomedical use. Compact fine grained material was prepared by cryogenic milling and subsequent spark plasma sintering. Mechanical properties of this metastable alloy can be controlled by precipitation of alpha phase, which occurs during annealing. Cryogenic milling causes significant microstructural refinement, which subsequently affects precipitation of alpha phase during spark plasma sintering (SPS). The effect of processing conditions (in particular sintering temperature) on microstructure, phase composition and mechanical properties was studied. The investigation shows that powder metallurgy is a viable approach for manufacturing small biomedical implants.
