Porous titanium, also named as sintered titanium and titanium foams, is sintered from titanium powder. It has pore structure exhibit high specific strength, high energy absorption, excellent corrosion resistance and biocompatibility. Generally, porous titanium processed from irregular titanium or titanium alloy irregular powder. It can be isostatically pressed, molded, and extruded.
The main process for porous titanium (including tube and sheet) is made of high-purity titanium powder as raw material, after sieved, cold isostatic pressing, high temperature, high vacuum sintering. The porous titanium is made up of its high-tech materials and special molding process, which makes it have unique and excellent performance:
-Uniform structure, narrow pore size distribution and high separation efficiency.
-High porosity, low filtration resistance and high penetration efficiency.
-High temperature resistance, generally can be used below 280 degrees.
-Good chemical stability, acid and alkali corrosion resistance, with antioxidant properties.
-Good mechanical properties.
-Low pressure difference, small footprint, large flow.
-Strong anti-microbial ability, does not interact with microorganisms.
Porous titanium has a wide variety of unique and important applications, included filtration, gas absorbing, gas sparging, separation, catalyst supporting, current collection, medical implantation and etc.
