  • Publication number: 20200149145
    Abstract: Provided herein are methods for the controlled, independent modification of the surface of titanium-based materials and compositions generated thereby. The methods allow for the alteration of multiple surface characteristics including generation of precise nanostructures, morphology, crystallography and chemical composition for increased biocompatibility, for example, osseointegration, osseoconduction, cell adhesion, cell proliferation, mechanical properties (e.g. elasticity, modulus, surface texture, porosity), hydrophobicity, hydrophilicity, steric hindrance, anti-inflammatory properties and/or anti-bacterial properties.

  • Publication number: 20170259336
    Abstract: A method of sintering electrically conducting powders in an air atmosphere for obtaining a sintered product includes the following step sequence: placing the powders in an electrically isolating mold, applying a pressure to the powders between 100 and 500 MPa, and applying to the powders a sintering current at a sintering voltage during a sintering time, for sintering the powders. Before applying the sintering current density to the powders, an activation current density is lower than the sintering current density at an activation voltage greater than the sintering voltage during an activation time lower than the sintering time, to reduce the electrical resistance of the powders.
