The mechanical behaviour and corrosion resistance, in simulated body fluid, of novel Ti-45Nb-(7-x)Zr-12.5Ta-xFe (x = 0, 3 and 7 wt. %) alloys have been investigated. Partial substitution of Zr by Fe, a cheaper-stabilizing element, allows decreasing the Young’s modulus and slightly improving the wear resistance. Moreover, moderate additions of Fe shift the corrosion potential towards more positive values, thus making these materials suitable for biomedical applications.
