Abstract

Ti-20%Zr(-5%Cr) alloys not containing harmful Al and V were newly designed in order to reveal their possibility for dental casting and melted in an arc melting and casting furnace under Ar atmosphere. The corrosion resistance was studied by anodic polarization test. From the observation of anodic polarization behavior, it was found that the corrosion resistance was markedly increased by the addition of Cr. The corrosion resistance of Ti-20%Zr-5%Cr alloy was superior to that in Ti-6%Al-4%V alloy but almost similar to that in CP Ti using in market place today.
