Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
We would like to invite you to submit your work to this Special Issue on “Advanced Surface Treatment Technologies for Metallic Alloys”. The scope of this Special Issue includes advanced surface treatment solutions applied to metallic alloys, which are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and safe for operators and the environment. The aim of this Special Issue is to present the latest experimental and theoretical achievements in the field, through a combination of original research papers and review articles from leading research groups around the world. Scientific and technological progress has been achieved on this topic by universities and research institutes worldwide. Furthermore, advanced surface treatment is very well known by scientists, and can improve the properties of any kind of metallic alloys.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Mechanical coating/alloying/treatment of the metallic alloys;
- Heat/thermo/chemical treatment of the metallic alloys;
- Nonconventional treatment applied to metallic alloys, such as: thermo/mechanical coating, including electrochemical machining, abrasive flow machining, shot blasting, shot peening, turbo-abrasive machining, centrifugal barreling finish, centrifugal isotropic finishing, and so on;
- Metallic biomaterials coatings applied, but not limited to, Ti-based alloys, CoCr alloys, and stainless steels.

Abstract: Biometallic alloys must be tolerated by the body for a long time (decades) and therefore must meet the functional requirements according to the medical applications in which they are to be used. Titanium based alloys are used because of their acceptance by the human tissues they interact with and the ability to perform the functional role for which they were implanted. One of the most important properties is the osseointegration which can be enhanced with various kind of treatments or deposition. The present article is a preliminary study focused on the enhancement of osseointegration of new TiMoZrTa system (TMZT) by electrochemical deposition of HA. According to previous studies the osseointegration can be enhanced by deposing HA on the biometallic alloys, being facilitated the human bone growth on the calcium phosphate structure.
Keywords: titanium alloy; osseointegration; TiMoZrTa system; electrochemical deposition.
