HENRIQUES, Vinicius André Rodrigues; CAMPOS, Pedro Paulo de; CAIRO, Carlos Alberto Alves  and  BRESSIANI, José Carlos. Production of titanium alloys for advanced aerospace systems by powder metallurgy. Mat. Res. [online]. 2005, vol.8, n.4, pp.443-446. ISSN 1516-1439.

Titanium alloys parts are ideally suited for advanced aerospace systems because of their unique combination of high specific strength at both room temperature and moderately elevated temperature, in addition to excellent corrosion resistance. Despite these features, use of titanium alloys in engines and airframes is limited by cost. The alloys processing by powder metallurgy eases the obtainment of parts with complex geometry. In this work, results of the Ti-6Al-4V and Ti-13Nb-13Zr alloys production are presented. Samples were produced by mixing of initial metallic powders followed by uniaxial and cold isostatic pressing with subsequent densification by sintering between 900 up to 1500 °C, in vacuum. Sintered samples were characterized for phase composition, microstructure and microhardness by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and Vickers indentation, respectively. It was shown that the samples were sintered to high densities and presented homogeneous microstructure from the elements dissolution with low interstitial pick-up.

Keywords : powder metallurgy; titanium alloys; near-net-shape.
