ASTM F1501 is a test method that covers tension testing of continuous calcium phosphate coatings that adhere to metal substances. Calcium phosphate is widely used as a coating for bone implants. With bone implants becoming more common every day, researchers are striving to improve implant options. ASTM F1501 allows testing of new implant coatings, which control implant degradation and enhance bioactivity and bone inductivity. ASTM F1501 assesses the degree of adhesion of coating to substrates, or the internal cohesion of a coating in tension, normal to the surface plane.
