Porosity and corrosion properties of CoCr alloys for dental application

  • 1 Technical University of Košice, Slovakia Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Department of Mechanical Engineering Technologies and Materials


The paper deals with the problem of occurrence of internal defects in materials produced by SLM technology. The influence of the position of materials on the platform during the SLM on selected properties – porosity and corrosion resistance were examined. The reuse of non-compacted powder (three times recycled powder) and its effect on porosity and corrosion resistance of materials was also tested. Porosity was measured on metallographic sections in two perpendicular directions by image analysis, corrosion properties were tested by linear polarization method.
