To produce higher quality o f titanium casting at a lower cost, the new titanium casting technology by using a permanent metal mold was developed and applied to fabricate hip jo in t fo r biomedical application. The present study was carried out to investigate the reactivity and flu id ity o f the Ti-6.0 wt%Al-4.0 wt%V alloy w ith metal mold by applying various ceramic powders coating on the mold surface. The molten titanium for manufacturing hip jo in t was poured into steel mold. No reaction layer was formed on the surface o f specimens fabricated steel mold coated with Y 20 3 powder.
