Hydroxyapatite powders were prepared by a chemical precipitation method and electrophoretically deposited on Ti6Al4V surgical alloy substrates. The powders were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), particle size distribution and zeta potential measurements. Prior to electrophoretic deposition, anodic films were obtained on Ti6Al4V and studied by the Auger method. It was established that experimental conditions of powder preparation, electric field and stirring have a significant influence on suspension stability and deposit morphology. The deposition yield was studied at various deposition durations and applied voltages. Sintered coatings were studied by SEM and XRD.
