Ti-6Al-4V ve AISI 316 L biyomalzemelerin aşınma davranışlarının bilye disk deney düzeneği ile araştırılması


Ti-6Al-4V material is generally used in biomaterial applications. However, this material is difficult to supply and an expensive material. Instead of Ti-6Al-4V material; It is investigated whether the use of 316 L material as an alternative is easier and more economical. In this study, Ti-6Al-4V and AISI 316 L test specimens made of the material subjected to the test under the same conditions wear performance were investigated using the ball on disc experimental setup. The experiments were carried out in three replicates in a dry and liquid medium. As a result, in the experiments; AISI 316 L samples are coated with PVD method compared to other samples in wear rates and abrasive wear marks on the surface of the samples were found to decrease. In studies using sodium hyaluronate fluid, it was found that the rate of abrasion and wear traces decreased compared to the dry environment. It was determined that 316 L samples coated with PVD method showed better wear performance compared to uncoated Ti-6Al-4V material. Considering the density differences of Ti6Al4V and 316L materials, 316L can be used instead of Ti6Al4V material.
