A Resorbable Surface Formed on Ti Alloy Material
This paper performs a new way of a resorbable surface on Ti alloy preparation. Precalcification of a chemically treated Ti or Ti alloy surface by a supersaturated calcification solution - SCS2 (high content of Ca2+ as well as (PO4)3- ions) allows to short of an induction period in SBF solution (practically immediate reaction stats a hydroxyapatite precipitation). Soluble octacalcium phosphate (Ca8H2(PO4)6. 5H2O was detected by RTG on the surface after calcification. Presumption is: a healing time of the calcified Ti alloy could be shortened.
