A two-stepped coating-sintering process to prepare the qualified Ni–Ti transition applied in metal-ceramic bonding proved to be effective to improve the wetting abilities. The method was introduced in detail and compared with 2 control groups. To analyze the benefits, the morphology and composition were captured by field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The comparisons of different coating depths and different

Finally, the contact angle tests and surface energies were also estimated to verify the reliability of the transition layer. The results indicated that the coating-sintering process combined with protective sintering was preferred and necessary to increase the activeness.
