This work systematically analysed the electrochemical and corrosion behaviour of Ti-Ta-Ag ternary alloy samples in Hank's solution. For the samples with 1.5% and 3% Ag content, the sintering temperature increased from 750 to 950°C, and the corresponding corrosion resistance increased by 100 times due to the increased alloying of Ag; meanwhile for the sample with 4.5% Ag content, the sintering temperature increased from 750 to 950°C, and the corresponding corrosion resistance decreased by six times due to the increased precipitation of Ag. These tests prove that the Ag alloying is beneficial to the enhancement of the corrosion resistance of Ti-Ta-Ag ternary alloy, but the Ag trace precipitation has the opposite effect. A series of electrochemical characterizations and density functional theory calculations explain the mechanism of the above phenomenon. Ag alloying can promote the formation of uniform, complete, dense, stable and thick passivation layer on the surface of Ti-Ta-Ag ternary alloy, which makes Ti-Ta-Ag ternary alloy uniformly corroded without pitting. In addition, Ag alloying can effectively reduce the contact resistance of the solid–liquid interface. However, the trace precipitation of Ag plays the opposite role to the above effect.
