Calcium Phosphate Coating on AT Titanium Plate by CD and BD Methods
Bonelike apatite coating on metal implants is an effective method to enhance bioactive properties of the metal surface. In the present study, the effectiveness of cathode deposition (CD) coating methods was investigated. And biomimetic deposition (BD) was also investigated as the parallel. The revised simulated body fluid (R-SBF) was chosen as an electrolyte and simulated body fluid. Both deposition methods could produce bonelike apatite coating on rough surfaces of the titanium. The uniformity of the CD coatings were better than the BD coatings’. And CD method was less sensitive to the condition of the titanium plate surfaces and much faster in the coating deposition. The spectra of FTIR showed that the characteristic peaks of CO3 2- apeared on the surface of ceramics, combined with spectra of XRD and SEM, it was concluded that a sertain thickness of bonelike apatite coating could be formed on the acided treatment (AT) titanium plate surfaces by CD method.
