Abstract.316L stainless steel was coated with Hydroxyapatite-chitosan (HAP-CS) using a pulsed electrophoretic deposition (PEPD) technique at a constant voltage (30 V) and frequency (50 Hz).The deposited coatings were analyzed using X-ray diffraction spectroscopy (XRD) ,micro roughness test, and scanning electron microscope (SEM), as well as, the Zeta potential for suspensions were calculated. In this paper was studied the characterization of the chitosan – hydroxyapatite coating on the 316L Stainless Steel.
