Material-Details: Hydroxyapatit Datasheet

 

Calcium apatite. Material used in the biomedical engineering to produce bone substitute material. The chemical composition is very similar to the composition of bone.


Advantages & disadvantages

Advantages
  • Very solid
  • High Resolution
  • High temperature resistance
  • Good wear resistance
Disadvantages
  • Not predictable automated
  • Brittle

Price calculation

Industrial Ceramics can be calculated only manuel

Typical usage

In the medicine it is used as biomaterial for bone replacement (bone graft), partly used in combination with Beta-tricalcium phosphate or as bioactive coating of titanium implants to improve bone incorporation.


Technology

Hydroxyapatite is produced in the FCP procedure.FCP means almost ceramic production and is a variation of the SLA process with subsequent refining through burning.

The procedure:

Your model is broken down into layers of 0.2 mm on the computer.
They are sent to the printer. The printer put a 0.2 mm thick layer of a ceramic resin mixture. This mixture hardens now in places where your part is to be created, by a UV laser.
This process is repeated until the component is created.
Now your part is burned, it escapes the resin and compressed the component.
In the end result is a dense ceramic material which is even medically useful.
