Abstract

In this paper, the scientific basics for the production of nanostructured titanium using the technology of severe plastic deformation to manufacture medical implants for their wide use in trauma treatment, orthopaedics, and dentistry are presented. Special attention is paid to the physics and mechanics of methods of severe plastic deformation leading to the formation of nanostructured states in titanium. The influence of nanostructuring on the mechanical and biomedical properties of titanium is studied, and the advantages of applying nanostructured titanium for medical implants are considered in detail. Methods for commercialization of this new material are discussed in detail. An important step is the creation of the pilot commercial production of semiproducts, rods from nanostructured titanium with a length of more than 3 m and a diameter of 5–8 mm, for an annual production volume of 2 t.
