Paper Title:
Processing and Mechanical Properties of Biphasic Calcium-Phosphate/Poly-L-Lactide Composite Biomaterials
  Abstract

This study descripts processing of biphasic calcium-phosphate (BCP) and poly-L-lactide (PLLA) biocomposite implant material. The composite was obtained by mixing completely dissolved PLLA with granules of high crystalline BCP and was compacted by hot pressing using cylindrical dies at 450 K temperature and 98.1 MPa pressure, for 30 and 60 minutes. Wide-angle Xray structural (WAXS) analyses of BCP, PLLA and BCP/PLLA composite blocks were made followed by calorimetric (DSC) tests in the 320-520 K temperature range. Compression tests revealed that Young’s modulus and compressive strength of the composite increased with extended hot pressing time and were found to be within the bounds of the cortical bone values.
