Fabrication and Characterization of HA/SiO2 Coatings by Gas Tunnel Plasma Spraying

  • MORKS Magdi F, KOBAYASHI Akira
  • Published 2007


Fused silica powder has been mixed with hydroxyapatite (HA) powder and plasma sprayed by using a gas tunnel-type plasma jet. The influence of silica content (10 Wt. % and 20 Wt. %) on the microstructure and mechanical properties of HA-silica coatings was investigated. The spraying was carried out on a SUS 304 substrate in an atmospheric chamber. Scanning… (More)
