Corrosion Resistance and Antibacterial Activity Performances of Ni-TiO_2 Composite Coatings
The novel properties for the corrosion resistance in a 5% NaCl salt-spray-test and the inhibitory capability of Ni-TiO<SUB>2</SUB> composite coating for the growth of pathogenic bacteria (<I>E. faecalis</I>, <I>E. coli</I>, and <I>P. aeruginosa</I>), under fluorescent irradiation and using a "drop-method" antibacterial experiment was set forth in this paper. The antibacterial activity of Ni-TiO<SUB>2</SUB> composite coating became more significant by increasing the TiO<SUB>2</SUB> contents in the composite coatings.
