Corrosion resistance and surface biocompatibility of a microarc oxidation coating on a Mg-Ca alloy.

Abstract

The Mg-Ca alloy system has been proposed as a potential new kind of degradable biomaterial with possible application within bone. Here microarc oxidation (MAO) coatings were fabricated on top of a Mg-Ca alloy using different applied voltages and the effect of applied voltage on the surface morphology and phase constitution, hydrogen evolution, pH variation… (More)
