60CaO-30P2O5-7Na2O-3TiO2 (mol%) glass-ceramic can be strongly joined with a new β-type Ti-29Nb-13Ta-4.6Zr alloy. In the present work apatite-forming ability in simulated body fluid of the glass-ceramic-coated titanium alloy was enhanced by autoclaving in water at 120°C for 1 h; surface of the autoclaved coating was completely covered with apatite after 10 days of soaking. In vivo tests showed that the glass-ceramic-coated titanium alloy after autoclaving in water makes a strong bond to natural bone.
