Abstract

Electrochemical measurements were performed to investigate the corrosion behavior of Ti-6Al-4 V alloy prepared by selective laser melting (SLM) and commercial Grade 5 sample for comparison. Electrochemical results showed that the SLM-produced sample possesses poorer corrosion resistance than the Grade 5 sample. Microstructure studies suggested that the SLM-produced sample is composed of dominant acicular α' martensite and some prior β grains, unlike the typical α + β microstructure in Grade 5 sample. The unfavorable corrosion resistance of the SLM-produced sample is related to the considerably large amount of acicular α' and less β-Ti phase in the microstructure compared to the Grade 5 sample. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.
