Orthopedic joint replacements, implants, and bone plates are generic, mass-produced components, which may not always be compatible. This paper investigates the optimum properties for two additive manufacturing processes, selective laser melting (SLM) and electron beam melting (EBM), for implant surgeries.
Complications occur in orthopedic surgery. Corrosion of magnesium W4 alloy was investigated in vitro by electrochemical methods in solutions replicating the body's environment. To control the biodegradation of titanium and magnesium implants, bio active PEO coatings are essential for biomedical implants.
An effective barrier coating aims to minimize exposed surface area. A sacrificial layer requires a large exposed surface.to maintain long term protection of the substrate. This work is to investigate this synergy in order to elucidate the factors that have the greatest influence over the corrosion protection properties and failure modes of TSN.
