French term or phrase: s'associer à
"Il est possible qu’une partie de la surface non couverte par le métal noble se passive à son tour; son potentiel électrique s’associe au potentiel électrique généré par la zone couverte par le métal noble."

This is about implants that have gold-plated surfaces with a pure nickel substrate.

"It is possible that part of the surface not covered by the noble metal is passive by nature; ts electrical potential is associated with the electrical potential generated by the zone covered by the noble metal."

when two dissimilar metals are adjacenet to eachother they produce galvanic action (electrical potential) according to the electrode potentials of the two dissimilar metals in question.

Can we know a little bit more about the reason for asking this question. Is it about corrosion, and/or tissue rejection ?
Where is the electrical potential being measured ? Is it bone and nickel or gold and nickel ?
