The multitude of published work reveals that the field of
biomaterials is of great interest to the academic and industrial world. The outlook of ameliorating the life of human beings has made this niche in the porous materials spectrum a favourite amongst researchers. In order for a porous material to qualify as a possibly successful biomaterial not only its structure needs to be controlled but its composition has to be regarded with even higher scrutiny. Even the smallest impurities are to be avoided since they might influence the tissue implant interaction. In this paper, emulsions stabilized with titanium particles are used to establish porous coatings on Ti6Al4V substrates. After coating the substrate with the emulsion by means of electrophoretic deposition (EPD), the liquid phases are removed by evaporation and the porous coatings are sintered in helium in a microwave furnace.
