Characterization of hydroxyapatite- and bioglass-316L fibre composites prepared by spark plasma sintering
Guo, Hongbo, Miao, Xigeng, Chen, Yanming, Cheang, P., & Khor, Khiam A. (2004) Characterization of hydroxyapatite- and bioglass-316L fibre composites prepared by spark plasma sintering. Materials Letters, 58(3-4), pp. 304-307.
To improve the mechanical properties of pure hydroxyapatite (HA) ceramics and pure 45S5 bioglasses, HA-316L fibre composites and bioglass 45S5-316L fibre composites were produced by spark plasma sintering (SPS) at 950 oC and 850 oC respectively. While the HA phase in the HA-316L fibre composites did not decompose after the SPS process, microcracks were found around the 316L fibres in the composites. Consequently, the HA-316L fibre composites could not effectively improve the mechanical properties of the pure HA ceramics. In contrast, the bioglass 45S5-316L fibre composites showed no microcracks around the 316L fibres and thus exhibited bending strengths of up to 115 MPa.
