In order to realize biomedical applications of bulk glassy alloys, we have developed new Pd-based glassy alloys with Ni-free composition in the Pd-Pt-Cu-P system. As a result, it is revealed that the highest glass-forming ability is obtained at the composition of Pd35Pt15Cu30P20. Furthermore, the alloy can be formed into bulk glassy rods with diameters of up to at least 30 mm by fluxed water quenching. In this paper, we intend to clarify undercooling behavior and critical cooling rate for glass-formation in the new bulk glassy Pd35Pt15Cu30P20 alloy.
