Corrosion behavior and cytotoxicity was reported for mixed brushite (BS)/hydroxyapatite (HA) coatings deposited on 316LSS substrate through a displacement reaction. Corrosion tests, carried out in a simulated body fluid, showed that in comparison with bare 316L, coating shifts Ecorrto anodic values and reduces icorreven if oscillations were observed, which were explained in terms of the chemical interactions at the solid/liquid interface. Cell biocompatibility of the coating was investigated through osteoblastic cell line MC3T3-E1, evidencing the absence of any cytotoxicity Taken together, the results show that galvanic deposition is a simple and cost-effective method for producing bioactive coatings which enhance corrosion resistance and biocompatibility of the substrate.
