Oxidation Kinetics in Titanium


Date: 15 October 2020

Time: 10:00am EDT, 3:00pm UK time

Titanium is one of the most widely used alloys for medical device applications due to its strength, corrosion resistance, and biocompatibility, amongst other characteristics.

It is also has form versatility (e.g. plates, rods, wire, etc.) and manufacture versatility (e.g. traditional subtractive machining, additive manufacturing, etc.). However, one of the most challenging phenomena with the use of titanium is oxidation. Whether intentional (e.g. anodization) or unintentional (e.g. alpha case formation), the process by which oxides form must be understood and well controlled to ensure optimal performance of any medical device. In this webinar, Julius Bonini, Principal Consultant of Metallurgy, will explore the various reactions, phenomena, and challenges associated with titanium oxidation, exploring thermodynamics, atomic diffusion, and a whole lot more.

Specific topics will include:

  • Basics of Titanium Metallurgy
  • Oxygen Diffusion
  • Oxide Formation
  • Oxide Stability
  • Surface Treatments which rely on Oxidation.

The webinar will serve as an excellent foundation to our future discussions with the attendees as we collaboratively work to innovate and solve all things metallurgy together.
