Ti-based alloys are accessible for use in the human body due to their good mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, and biocompatibilities. These main properties of alloys are important criteria for choosing biomedical implants for human bones or for other kinds of applications in general medicine. This paper presents a comparison of four new Ti-based alloys desired to satisfy various requirements for biomedical implants. The materials were prepared with recipes for two new system alloys, TiMoZrTa (TMZT) and TiMoSi (TMS), alloys with nontoxic elements. The presented research contains microstructure images, indentation tests, Vickers hardness, XRD, and corrosion resistance, showing better characteristics than most commercial products used as implants (Young’s modulus closer to the human bone).
