Reach of Antibacterial Properties of Compound Coatings by Micro-Arc Oxidation and Electroless Silver Plating
Antibacterial properties of compound coatings by Micro-arc oxidation and electroless silver plating were reached. Effects of main salt, reducing agent, complexing agent and solution pH on plating rate and solution stability were discussed. The surface morphology and antibacterial properties of compound coatings were analyzed. Bonding strength between compound coatings was tested by tensile peeling method. The results show that compound coatings have good antibacterial effects, the average bonding strength of compound coatings is higher than 22.6 MPa, and compound coatings are firmly bonded.
