  4. Abstract:
  5. The effect of grit blasting parameters on the surface roughness of Ti-6Al-4V alloy as the substrate for plasma-sprayed hydroxyapatite (HA) coatings was examined using the factorial and Taguchi designs of experiments. In this study, two grit materials (Al2O3 and SiO2) each at two sizes, and two types of blasting systems (pressure and suction) were used. An equivalent surface roughness of 3.51 μm was obtained in three optimum conditions. The results of the Taguchi designed experiments were analyzed using signal to noise ratio. The tensile bonding strength of HA coatings deposited on the roughened substrates at the three different optimum conditions was measured by the standard adhesion test (ISO 13779-4). As the crystallinity of the coating at the interface, evaluated by the XRD analysis, reduced the bonding strength of the coatings was increased. These findings suggest that the substrate surface topography significantly influences the properties of the coating at the interface. © 2007
