Fluoroapatite glass-ceramic coatings on alumina: structural, mechanical and biological characterisation.


The aim of this work was to realise bioactive coatings on full density alpha-alumina substrates. An SiO2-CaO-based glass (SC) and an SiO2-Al2O3-P2O5-K2O-CaO-F--based glass-ceramic (SAF) were used for this purpose. Specifically, SAF is a fluoroapatite containing glass-ceramic and previous studies have shown that it is a highly bioactive biomaterial… (More)
