Effects of Ingredients and Post-Heat Treatment on Phase Transformation and Structure of Bioactive Composite Coatings


Article Preview

Bioactive composite coatings containing sub-layer and working-layer with different ingredients were prepared using subsonic thermal spraying technology and then heat-treated at 700°C for 1h. Two types of bioglasses, named BG1 and BG2, and Y2O3 were used as additives of the sublayer and working layer respectively. Phase transformation and structure changes of the coatings were investigated with XRD, DSC and SEM. Results showed that the phases of as-sprayed Ti/BG1 sub-layer were TiN, TiO2 (rutile and anatase), etc. Post-heat treatment changed the phase composition. TiN and anatase transformed into rutile and some new phases generated, which often enriched at pores and cracks. In the working-layer, part of nano-hydroxyapatite powders decomposed during coating preparation. Y2O3 impaired the decomposition to some extent and BG2 enhanced greatly. Post-heat treatment increased the crystallinity of all coatings effectively. The analysis of TG-DSC showed that BG2 added in working-layer crystallized at 700°
