The effect of sintering conditions on compacts made from commercially pure titanium (CP Ti) powder has been studied. Compacts were cold pressed to ensure interconnected porosity, and then, sintered with different temperature-time cycles. A detailed study has been carried out to determine the influence of the sintering conditions on mechanical properties. Properties result very sensitive to the sintering cycle, especially to the speed of the heating stage. A difference of 30 minutes in the duration of the heating ramp makes the ultimate tensile strength to change in almost 200 MPa.
