Results of investigation of the microstructure, mechanical properties, and thermostability of bioinert titanium VT1-0 and zirconium E110 in nanostructured and ultrafine-grained states formed by combined methods of severe plastic deformation, including abc pressing in a press-mould or without it and multipass rolling in grooved or smooth rolls, are presented. It is demonstrated that the combined severe plastic deformation method allows titanium and zirconium billets in nanostructured and ultrafine-grained states to be obtained that provides substantial improvement of the mechanical properties comparable to the properties of titanium alloys, for example, VT6 and VT16 ones. The yield strength and the microhardness of titanium and zirconium obey the Hall-Petch relationship.
