Apatite-forming ability and mechanical properties of glass-ceramic A-W-polyethylene composites in simulated body fluid (SBF) were analyzed. The surfaces before and after soaking in SBF were investigated using X-ray diffractometry and field emission scanning electron microscopy. Results indicated that a homogeneous distribution of glass-ceramic A-W was achieved, which was important for optimal mechanical and bioactive properties. The SBF results showed that apatite formed on the entire surface of all composites after one day immersion.
