The coating of magnesia partially stabilized zirconia (Mg-PSZ) with a bioactive glass was investigated for enhancing the bioactivity and bone-bonding ability of Mg-PSZ orthopedic implants. Individual coatings of three different bioactive glasses were prepared by depositing a concentrated suspension of the glass particles on Mg-PSZ substrates, followed by sintering at temperatures between 750 degrees C and 850 degrees C. Two silicate-based glass compositions (designated 13-93 and 6P68), and a… CONTINUE READING
