Surface Treatments of Titanium to Improve Adhesion
I am a Student Engineer working for Cochlear.
We have chosen a platinum cure silicone adhesive for priming the titanium surface of the implant, however difficulty has been experienced in achieving consistent adhesion results on test samples.
I require possible titanium surface preparation techniques for improving adhesion properties. To present preparation has only involved cleaning in degreaser or an Acetone [affil. link to info/product on Amazon] bath plus an ethanol wipe. Treatment must minimally affect the dimensions of the titanium. If anyone can give some information on this it would be greatly appreciated.
