Characterization of Powder Metallurgy Processed Pure Magnesium Materials for Biomedical Applications
MetadataShow full item record
Magnesium and its alloys are modern lightweight materials applicable in a wide range of industrial fields from aerospace and automotive to biomedical applications. Its main advantages are a good strength to weight ratio and biocompatibility in combination with biodegradability. However, due to the high reactivity of pure Mg and the mechanical properties, not really sufficient for engineering applications, mainly magnesium alloys are used. Good mechanical properties of magnesium and its alloys can be furthermore significantly upgraded by decreasing the grain size, nowadays performed mainly via severe plastic deformation (SPD) techniques, powder metallurgy (PM) processing or by a combination of both methods
