The Influence of Sintering Temperature on Mechanical and Microstructural Properties of Bovine Hydroxyapatite

Abstract:

Article Preview

The influence of sintering temperature on densification, microstructure and the mechanical properties of bovine hydroxyapatite (BHA), produced by a calcination method, was investigated. Densification and mechanical properties increased over increasing sintering temperature in the range between 1000°C and 1300°C, and there are evidences of optimum sintering temperature at 1200°C. The measured mechanical properties indicate sintered BHA-bodies as interesting biomaterials for further investigation in biomedical applications.
