The present study showed the suitability of bioactive glass-ceramics for application as bioactive coating on Ti based biomedical implants. The desired properties of bioactive glass-ceramic coating were obtained through controlled crystallization. XRD, optical microscopy, SEM in association with EDX data showed the phase composition and morphology of the glass-ceramic coatings. Microhardness distribution across the coated substrates and the scratch resistance property of the coatings were varied for the differently heat treated coated substrates. The bioactivity of the fluroapatite based glass-ceramic coating on Ti6Al4V substrate was investigated in vitro in simulated body fluid (SBF) solution. After immersion in SBF solution the glass-ceramic coating surface was characterized by SEM, EDX analysis and the elemental compositional change of the SBF solution was determined by chemical analysis technique. SEM, EDX analysis and chemical analysis indicated that the glass-ceramic coatings reacted with the SBF solution and formed fluroapatite layer on their surfaces.
