Abstract

Biocompatible and hemocompatible diamond-like carbon (DLC) coatings were applied by plasma assisted chemical vapor deposition to a titanium cylinder to study and determine the wear resistance of the DLC coatings against erosion by soft tissue. The wear tests were made on uncoated and coated specimens against soft cadaver tissue and dynamic friction of the two were compared. DLC coating proved to be superior as compared to the other coatings tested.
