Development of Bioactive Organic Polymer Composite by Electrophoretic Deposition
By electrophoretic deposition, wollastonite particles were deposited in pores of porous ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). The UHMWPE-wollastonite composite thus fabricated was soaked in a simulated body fluid. As a result, apatite was formed inside the pores as well as on the surface of the UHMWPE-wollastonite composite. The formed apatite showed high adhesive strength to the composite.
