Corrosion Resistance Evaluation of Porous Titanium with Biomimetic Coatings

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this work, porous titanium samples processed by powder metallurgy and coated with biomimetic coatings, obtained during different periods of immersion in a simulated body fluid (SBF), were tested for corrosion resistance in a phosphate buffer solution (PBS). Uncoated samples were also tested for comparison. The corrosion resistance of both types of titanium samples was evaluated by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and potentiodynamic polarisation curves. The electrochemical results indicated the formation of a surface film on the porous Ti samples with immersion in the SBF solution and this biomimetic film increased their corrosion resistance. This film helps osteointegration besides increasing corrosion resistance.
