Paper Abstract

For the acceleration of the osteointegration processes of the metals implants we deposit on their surface the biokompotible ceramic coatings on the basis of hydroxyapatite. However such coatings have a certain deficiency connected with the absence of the necessary strength characteristics for a such kind of the implant. That's why it actual to create the coatings having beside biological compatibility the necessary strength and springy- elastic properties. We have developed the method of the receiving of the new biocompatible coatings with gradient structure over width on the titanium substrate. The essence of the developed method is in plasma coatings deposition within beforehand given supply of the powder consisting of two components (oxyde aluminum and hydroxyapatite) in the process of the deposition. It's showed that the received gradient coatings are the mixture of the crystals Al2O3 and HA, the concentrations of which change over the width. The topological investigation of the surface and the coating cross-sections was performed from which the chemical composition distribution over width was studied and found the absense of the chemical interaktion between Al2O3 and HA. By regulation of the distribution of the initial components over the coating widths it is possible to set the phase comsposition and crystal sizes in the biocompatible coatings. In the process of etching in the solutions imitating the physiological ones it is found the formation of the pores having dendritic structure. The performed investigations show the possibility of the usage of the developed coatings in medicine particularly in stomatolgoy.
