    Author(s): Ahmed Ali Mohammed*, Thekra Ismail Hamad and Ahmed Hameed Neamah

    Aim: To evaluate the wettability and micro hardness of Zirconium (ZrO2) dental material when coated with different concentrations of Faujasite. Materials and methods: 30 circular disks produced from ZrO2, then each group classified into 10 control groups, 10 coated groups with 3% Faujasite and 10 coated groups with 7% faujasite by electro spun tool to study variable properties in hardness and water contact angle of implant materials. Results: This study stated the high hardness in 7% of faujasite concentration for ZrO2, in addition, the contact angle decreased gradually until reach 0° in 7% concentration of faujasite with ZrO2. Conclusion: Water Contact Angle (WCA) declined till disappeared in (7% wt.) of faujasite coated with the ZrO2.. Read More»
