The successful use of plasma-sprayed hydroxyapatite (HA) coatings on Ti-alloy implants for implant-to-bone fixation requires strong adherence of the ceramic coating to the underlying metal substrate. In this study, the metal-ceramic interface was evaluated using mechanical, chemical, and structural characterization methods. Evaluations of an HA-coated Ti-6Al-4V implant system using a modified short bar technique for interfacial fracture toughness determination revealed relatively low fracture… CONTINUE READING
