In this paper, the effect of some parameters of a two-step surface-modification process, consisting of alkaline treatment followed by chitosan/bioactive glass nanocomposite coating, on the surface morphology of Ti–6Al–4V alloy is investigated. According to the results, the heat treatment of the alkaline-treated sample is critical to obtain a crack-free structure. It was also found that the deposition of three composite layers with the immersion time of 3 min for each layer is optimal to develop a desirable distribution of the composite nanoparticles on the surface. In other words, a coordinated optimization approach of composite-coating variables is required to control the morphology of the deposits.
