Formation of TiO2 Coating Layer on the Surface Treated Ti Alloys


Article Preview

Pure Titanium alloys are superiorities of biocompatibility, mechanical properties and chemical stability. The biocompatibility of Ti alloy is related to the surface effect. In this study, Ti Alloys were treated by alkali and acid activation process. And through the sol coating layer, biocompatibility were investigated. Consequently, it appeared that the porous layer was generated on the surface of alloy by surface treatment and sol coating process. It was found that with surface treatment on Ti alloy, the formation speed of porous was much quicker compared with those ones without treatment. Therefore, the biocompatibility was improved.
