Özet

In this study, beta( )type Ti-29Nb-13Ta-4.6Zr alloys coated with biphasic calcium phosphate (BCP) reinforced with rutile-TiO2 compounds by sol-gel technique to evaluate its possible usage in biomaterial science. Calcium nitrate tetrahydrate (Ca(NO3)(2)center dot 4H(2)O), di-ammonium hydrogen phosphate (NH4)(2)HPO4), ammonium hydroxide (NH4OH), and titanium (IV) propoxide (Ti(OC3H7)(4)) (Merck, Germany) were used as precursors for producing the BCP-only and BCP/TiO2 composite coatings. Synthesis and coating procedure, surface morphology, adhesion strength, and corrosion results of the coated samples have been investigated in details. XRD technique has been used in order to characterization of BCP phases. The morphological observations of coatings were determined by using a scanning electron microscopy (SEM). In-vitro corrosion behaviors of the coatings have been determined with polarization method in Ringer's electrolyte at body temperature. It was found that the BCP/TiO2 coating synthesized on TNTZ alloy has higher scratch resistance than BCP-only coating due to its containing rutile-TiO2 compounds. In addition, it can be said that the BCP/TiO2 coated sample was less susceptibility to corrosion than the BCP-only coatings and uncoated TNTZ sample in simulated body fluid.
