Abstract: The electrophoretic deposition (EPD) technique was developed for depositing TiO2 films on stainless steel (SS) and titanium substrates. Titania coatings were obtained in conditions of optimal solution stability using acetylacetone suspensions of TiO2 nanoparticles and I2 at pH≈ 5. Deposition tests were carried out at 10V for varying times. The deposit thickness was seen to increase with EPD time, revealing that the deposits grew quickly for times <120 s, reaching a saturation value at longer times. The subs…
