Electrophoretic deposition (EPD) is a colloidal process involving the deposition of charged nanoparticles from a colloidal suspension via electric field-assisted migration. The method is advantageous in fabricating surface coatings with enhanced corrosion resistance, wear resistance, biocompatibility, bioactivity and anti-microbial qualities. This chapter delivers a brief account of EPD coatings reported for Mg alloys. EPD composite coating strategies are highlighted.
