Electrophoretic deposition of hydroxy-apatite on Ti6Al4V

Anand, Rajan (2012) Electrophoretic deposition of hydroxy-apatite on Ti6Al4V. BTech thesis.



In the present study, electrophoretic deposition of sintered and non sintered hydroxyapatite on Ti6Al4V has been carried out at a constant voltage of 30V for 5, 10 and 15 minute duration at different pH values of 1.5, 2.5 and 3.5 respectively for improving the property of coated layer. An uniform coating of hydroxyapatite (HAp) will results in a better cellular activity. As-received Ti-6Al-4V samples are polished by following the standard metallographic technique to prepare a scratch free surface. After coating under different processing conditions the surface are characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) for morphological studies and x-ray diffraction technique for phase analysis. SEM images show that at lower pH value 1.5 and constant voltage 30V crack were not present at coating surface. Comparison between sintered (900˚ for 2 hrs) and non-sintered hydroxyapatite deposition and phase characterization analysis was done by XRD analysis. XRD analysis indicated that before sintering, some other compounds were present in HAp powder but after sintering they were not oxidized. The presence of chemical elements on the deposited surface was assessed by EDS.
