Bioceramic Coating on Metallic Substrates: Hydroxyapatite Coating on Ti and Ti6Al4V Substrates by Electrophoretic Deposition Method

Coating biologically inert metallic implants with biologically active materials, like hydroxyapatite (HA), combines the mechanical benefits of metals with the biocompatibility of HA. Moreover it is an attempt to accelerate bone formation at initial stages of osseointegration, to improve implant fixation and to prevent the release of metal ions from the implant into the body. This book (PhD dissertation) provides information and presents some studies about producing of nano and submicron sized HA powders, densification behavior of produced HA powders, and bioceramics coating on metal substrates by electrophoretic deposition (EPD) method. Studies about bioceramics coating presented in this book were conducted towards prevention of crack occurrence, low adhesion strength and HA decomposition which are problems commonly encountered in EPD method. Furthermore, studies were conducted to create coating surfaces consisted of HA, TiO2 and both TCP/TiO2. The information provided and the studies presented in this book are especially useful to professionals in "Coatings and Thin Films" and "Surfaces and Interfaces" fields related to biomaterials, and bioceramics coated metallic implants.
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc.
