Porous materials are needed for the development of new surgical implants where reliable implant-to bone fixation is accomplished. Here we report a method based on P/M technology to obtain titanium alloys with controlled porosity and good mechanical properties due to the use of nanocrystalline powders, with means of the traditional sintering techniques combined with hot isostatic pressing (HIP).
