Because of their excellent mechanical properties, low density and biocompatibility, titanium foams are attractive for structural and biomedical applications. This paper reviews current techniques for titanium foam processing, which are all based on powder-metallurgy because of the extreme reactivity of liquid titanium. A first group of processes is based on powder sintering with or without place-holder or scaffolds. A second group relies on expansion of pressurized pores created during prior powder densification.
