Quantification of the relationships between the basic component of the surface tension (gamma) of stainless steel and the initial formation of calcium phosphate and/or protein deposits

The effect of the surface on the deposition behaviour of calcium phosphate was quantified in the presence and absence of protein as well as in the presence and absence of citrates. It was concluded that surfaces having lower values of Gamma- promote the formation of less and bigger aggregates in the initial phase of deposit formation. Opposed to surfaces having higher values of Gamma- where more although much smaller aggregates are formed.
