The present study presents the mechanical and structural evaluation, as well as the corrosion resistance of a Ti-31.7Nb-6.21Zr-1.4Fr-0.16O (wt%) alloy, designated to oral implantology. The as studied alloy was mechanically and structurally tested, in condition obtained after melting in a levitation induction furnace type FIVE CELES- MP25. Regarding alloy mechanical properties, the microhardness was studied; the alloy structural evaluation comprises the microstructure and fracture surfaces analysis. The corrosion resistance was determined through the linear polarization technique, with a Potentiostat/Galvanostat/EIS Analyzer (model PARSTAT 4000, producer Princeton Applied Research); the potentiodynamic curves were obtained with the VersaStudio software.
