Abstract

Ceramic slips with powder loadings in the range of 80-140 wt% were used to investigate the effect of slip loading on the physical and mechanical properties of open pore HA/TCP bioceramics. The results indicated that increasing the slip loading had an effect on the properties of the samples. The average apparent density, the work of fracture and compressive strength all increased with slip loading. In contrast, the effect of increasing slip loading on the four-point bending strength was not significant.
