Obtaining new light alloys of high added value to contribute to the development of the country's biomaterial and aeronautical industries

Project Details


The development of materials has driven the generation of new products and applications. the use of ti and mg alloys in industries such as aircraft manufacturing and in the production of biomaterials, is quite wide and still has a great potential for greater application. among the most important problems to solve in mg alloys are some of its mechanical properties and its resistance to corrosion, which despite advances achieved with the use of different alloys, there is no substantial improvement. on the other hand, the low density of mg, makes it a very promising alloy for ti alloys, which despite being considered light alloys, it would be very interesting to decrease their density. despite these great attractions, obtaining mg-ti and ti-mg alloys is quite complex given the very low solubility of these two metals under equilibrium conditions. this fact has limited the possibility of obtaining these alloys in volume and the vast majority of advances have been made in the form of thin films.


Obtain ti-mg and mg-ti alloys by means of powder metallurgy and hot isostatic pressing (hip) techniques for potential application as biomaterials and in the aeronautical industry.
