Since the MA 956 was proposed as a possible new biomaterial due to its good corrosion resistance values in physiological fluids a long way, still not finished, has been done. An exhaustive characterization of this alloy at room temperature has been developed. The technological objetives are well established: the possible use of this material for biomedical applications as hip or knee prostheses and as dental implants. The study was performed comparing the results of this alloy with the materials used nowadays as surgical implants, i.e., titanium alloys and polyethylene.
