Summary Objectives
The purpose of this study was to investigate the bond strength of apatite layer on titanium (Ti) substrate coated by biomimetic method and to improve the bonding of apatite layer to Ti substrate by optimizing the alkali heat-treatment process.

Ti plates pre-treated with an alkali solution of 10 M sodium hydroxide (NaOH) were heat-treated at 600 °C for 1 h at different atmospheres: in air and in vacuum. A dense apatite layer formed on top of the sodium titanate layer after soaking the alkali and heat-treated Ti samples in simulated body fluid (SBF) for up to 3 weeks. The bond strengths of the sodium titanate layer on Ti substrate, and apatite layer on the sodium titanate layer, were measured, respectively, by applying a tensile load. The fracture sites were observed with a scanning electron microscope (SEM).

The apatite layer on the substrate after alkali heat-treatment in air achieved higher bond strength than that on the substrate after alkali heat-treatment in vacuum. It was found that the interfacial structure between the sodium titanate and Ti substrate has a significant influence on the bond strength of the apatite layer.

It is advised that titanium implants can achieve better osseointegration under load-bearing conditions by depositing an apatite layer in vivo on a Ti surface subjected to alkali and heat-treated in air.
