Improved Tribocorrosion Resistance of a CoCrMo Implant Material by Carburising

Tribocorrosion damage is a cause for the premature failure of hip implants made of cobalt-based alloys. Low-temperature carburising can be a plausible solution towards mitigating the tribocorrosion damage of articulating components. This diffusion treatment introduces a supersaturated carbon solid s...
