Compound coatings of Ca-phosphates and/ titanate on metallic implants for medical applications

Abstract : To combine the good mechanical properties of metallic substrate with the bioactivity of some ceramics, to obtain bioactive surface, a calcium phosphate (Ca-P) coating has been developed. The goal is to improve the biocompatibility and bioactivity of metallic implant and create a barrier against the possible release of toxic ions from the metallic substrate. Our approach has been to develop a new synthetic route. After mechanical polishing and chemical etching of the titanium or Ti-6Al-4V substrates, an interlayer of sodium titanate was obtained by an alkaline pretreatment of the substrates. Then, it was subjected to a heat treatment to create a nanometeric layer. The latter facilitates the growth of a layer of Ca-P by means of an electroless manner similar to the forming process of the natural bone. Characterization and study of Ca-P coatings obtained by the three baths (acids, alkalis and oxidizing) on metallic substrates have been made. The deposits were studied from a structural and morphological point of view. The stability of Ca-P layers was measured in simulated body fluid (SBF) for different periods using biochemical analyzes. In conclusion, this method is a cheap and reliable solution that can be used on an industrial scale. The Ca-P as well as the sodium titanate layers can afford to be impregnated with active agents such as one or more antibacterial agents.
