It has the same strength, and high corrosion resistance as Ti 6AL-4V. It is also light-weight and is highly tolerant to damage by other alloys. Its use is highly desirable in the medical and dental fields for uses in complex surgical procedures not only because of these properties but also because of the unique surgical properties Ti 6AL-4V ELI has. It has superior biocompatibility making it easy to graft in and attach to bone all the while being accepted by the human body. Some of the more common surgical procedures Ti 6AL-4V ELI is used in include:
- Orthopedic pins and screws
- Orthopedic cables
- Ligature clips
- Surgical staples
- Orthodontic appliances
- In joint replacements
