The method used for preparing a titanium alloy Ti-6Al-4V, impact on the kind of the resulting structure. Which in turn affects the properties of material. Method of continuous casting provides conventional alloy with crystalline structure. Rapid cooling during the injection casting, allows providing the partly amorphous and disordered structure. X-ray qualitative analysis confirmed the types of structures obtained, depending on the method of producing. In both cases disclosed peaks of alpha and beta phases: Ti α and Ti β. Evaluation of surface topography, allowed to conclude that the greater extension of the surface is characterized for alloy formed by injection. It has twice the roughness than the alloy obtained by the conventional method. Higher roughness affects the process of fusion implant with living tissues in the body. Analyzed titanium has a higher resistance to abrasion (injection method) than the alloy produced by the conventional method. The resulting alloy Ti-6Al-4V injection method has better performance in terms of medical, than the same alloy produced by the continuous casing.
