Abstract

Regularities of the formation of calcium phosphate coatings on the surface of titanium and zirconium alloys formed by the method of microarc oxidation are investigated. The scheme of deposition of the calcium phosphate coating in microarc discharges is suggested that explains the difference in the morphology, microstructure, and properties of coatings on the surface of titanium and zirconium alloys. It is demonstrated that coatings on the surface of titanium and zirconium alloys have different structures, phase compositions, and physicomechanical properties due to different electrophysical characteristics of metal (titanium and zirconium) substrates, disperse β-Nb particles, and passivating oxide films on their surfaces.
