‘Basic SBF’ treatment; pores formation
|Abstract:||In our recent study, we aimed to impart hydroxyapatite (HA)-forming to bioinert stainless steels (SUS316L). The surfaces of SUS316L specimen were treated by a sandblasting process using alumina grinding particles with 14.0 or 3.0 μm for average particle size, respectively. In addition, a doubled sandblasting process (DSP) using the 14.0 μm particles and subsequently 3.0 μm ones were also conducted. Compared with the case of the 14.0 μm particles, the 3.0 μm particles were available to increase the surface roughness and the surface area of the specimen. Moreover, these values were further increased in the case of the DSP. These specimens were soaked in simulated body fluid (SBF) at pH = 8.4, 25 °C and were directly heated in the solution by electromagnetic induction. By this treatment, formation of CaP was induced on each specimen. These materials performed high HA-forming ability in SBF. Average bonding strength of the HA film formed on them in SBF was increased depending on the increase of surface roughness and surface area. These results indicated that sandblasting condition was an important factor to improve interlocking effect related to the increase of the surface roughness and the surface area.|
