Abstract

β-NaCaPO4 (β-rhenanite) has been found in this study as a weak interface for HAp ceramics. The β-NaCaPO4 is an easy path for debonding as demonstrated using the HAp/bioactive glass laminate. The β-NaCaPU4 exhibits also high biocompatibility and bioactivity. Moreover, it significantly enhances sinterability of HAp at 1000°C without formation of any not desired phases. Results of this study show that various microstructurally controlled HAp-based composites with potentially improved reliability and high biocompatibility can be prepared in the HAp/β-NaCaPO4 or HAp/bioactive glass systems.
