AbstractBecause of importance the Ga alloys in dental applications, many attempts were done to improve the properties of this alloy. The currentwork involves addition of TiO2nanotube powder to Galloy to improve somemechanical properties. These properties included hardness, compression, and creep. The characterization of prepared TiO2/Galloys with five wt% of TiO2(1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 wt%) was done by XRD and SEM/EDS. The results showed that the hardness, compression, were increased with increasing percentage of added TiO2, while creep decrease.Some phases such as β-Sn, Ag2Ga and Ag9In4were contributed to improve the properties of new TiO2/Galloycomposites.
