The objective of this study is the processing and the evaluation of bulk properties of new quaternary alloy Ti25Ta25NbXSn (X=4, 5 %wt) for biomedical applications. Alloys will be obtained according our previous studies. After melting in arc melting furnace and cold work, it will be carried out heat treatment of annealing and solubilisation. Characterization techniques such as optical microscopy, scanning microscopy and X-rays diffraction analysis will be used to evaluate the phases and structure of the materials. Tension test and microhardness tests will be used to analyze mechanical properties of these vitro studies will be carried out to check the cytotoxicity of these alloys.
