Abstract
Abstract Titanium alloys are well known for their superior mechanical properties as well as for their good biocompatibility, making them desirable as surgical implant materials. However, these alloys have been proven to behave poorly in friction since wear particles were often detected in tissues and organs associated with titanium implants. In this paper, three surface treatments were investigated in order to improve the wear resistance and the hardness of Ti-6Al-4V and Ti-5Al-2.5Fe: (a) glow discharge nitrogen implantation (10 17 atoms cm −2 ), (b) plasma nitriding by plasma diffusion treatment (PDT) and (c) deposition of TiN layer by plasma-assisted chemical ...
