Corrosion Resistance of the Implant Materials Contimet 35, Memory, and Vitallium in Artificial Physiological Fluids
Geis-Gerstorfer, Jürgen / Weber, Heiner
The linear polarization method has been used to demonstrate the influence of different electrolytes on the corrosion behavior of Ti, Ni-Ti, and Co-Cr-Mo. Results revealed minimal corrosion tendency for Ti; Co Cr-Mo, and especially Ni-Ti, showed rapid breakdown of passivity with increasing chloride concentrations in unbuffered solutions and little differences in buffered solutions.
