Calcium phosphate cements: study of the beta-tricalcium phosphate--dicalcium phosphate--calcite cements.

Abstract

The setting and strengthening properties of beta-tricalcium phosphate (beta-TCP)--dicalcium phosphate dihydrate (DCPD)--calcite blends upon admixture with water were investigated at 25 and 37 degrees C. Setting was accelerated by seeding the system with hydroxyapatite (HAp), and strengthening improved when the solids were mixed with a solution saturated… (More)
