Abstract

Titanium alloy (Ti-6Al-4V) and stainless steel (316L) are two of the most commonly used materials in the manufacture of orthopaedic implants. To achieve better biocompatibility with bone, metal implants made of 316L or Ti-6Al-4V are often coated with calcium hydroxyapatite (HA) bioceramics. This paper is to describe a new dipping solution recipe used for HA coating. Sample characterization was performed by SEM and XRD.
