Calcium Phosphate Coatings on Titanium Alloy via an Electrodeposition Method

Abstract:

Article Preview

Calcium phosphates coatings were deposited onto titanium discs via en electrodeposition method. Discs were blasted with calcium phosphate particles and etched in a mixture of sulfuric and fluoric acids. Temperatures from 25 to 80°C and current densities from 8 to 120 mA/ cm2 were used. Deposition times tested were between 10 and 120 min. The electrolyte consisted of a super saturated solution stirred at 250 rpm. The amount of magnesium (Mg2+) and carbonate (HCO3-) ions was varied from 0 to 1 mM. Coatings increased in thickness by increasing deposition time. The different amounts of Mg2+ and HCO3- affected the homogeneity and morphology of the coatings. Main factors affecting the deposition were temperature of electrolyte and current density.
