Abstract

Nano-structured silver layer was deposited by pulse current technique onto three different implant materials -TiAl6V4, CoCrMo alloy and stainless steel–that are commonly used in orthopedic surgery. The electrochemical behavior of the coatings in isotonic salt solution was investigated by potentiodynamic polarization measurements over a period of several weeks. The corrosion properties of silver coated different implant materials were compared. Degradation of silver coatings have been traced and confirmed by different methods such as scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) measurements.
