Abstract

Titanium and stainless steel alloys, for example, are essential components of modern medicine and play a vital role in the medical business. A number of titanium alloys, including AISI 410 and AISI 316L, and stainless steel materials have been selected for usage in the medical business due to their widespread availability and extensive use. The objective of this research is to look at the microbiological and tribological characteristics of the materials listed above that have undergone various controlled treatments, such as surface treatment of the alloys using thermal diffusion. Thermal diffusion treatments known commercially as boronizing and nitriding were utilized. All of the base materials had their surface hardness and wear resistance increased by both nitriding and boronizing treatments.The boriding treatment resulted in a significant increase in surface roughness, but it also maximized surface hardness and reduced wear losses. Both nitriding and boronizing processes produced antibacterial activity against subtilis bacillus bacterial
