    • Abstract

       

      Potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy were employed to test borided CP-Ti, treated by a relatively new method called pulsed plasma electrolytic boriding. The results show excellent corrosion resistance for modified CP-Ti. The effect of frequency and duty cycle of pulsed current was investigated. It was found that pulse frequency and duty cycle affect the size and porosity of nanocrystalline borides and by controlling these effective parameters, surface modification can render the CP-Ti material extremely corrosion resistant as a biomaterial.
