[Corrosiveness of Ti-Fe-Mo-Mn-Nb-Zr alloys in various pH lactic acids].
Variation in pH value of oral cavity circumstance causes decayed tooth. In this paper, corrosions of Ti-Fe-Mo-Mn-Nb-Zr dental alloys in various pH lactic acids were studied by immersion test. In the case of pH=4, which is an acidity slightly larger than that causes decayed tooth, Ti-Fe-Mo-Mn-Nb-Zr alloys are entirely corrosion-resistant, and the corrosion type is pitting. With the increase in acidity, the corrosion-resistance of Ti-Fe-Mo-Mn-Nb-Zr alloys deteriorates, and the corrosion type changes from pitting to intergranular corrosion. Fe ion is the most dissolved substance in impregnation, which means Fe goes against the corrosion-resistance of Ti alloys. Both results of thermodynamics calculation and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy have shown that Mn2O3, Nb2O5 and TiO2 form oxide film on the surface of Ti-Fe-Mo-Mn-Nb-Zr alloys.
