Abstract

The covering of titanium implants by means gas-thermal spraying of hydroxyapatite powders is an actual scientific, technical and medical problem. Application of hydroxyapatite for these purposes is more preferable. However, the problem of its structural and cyclic strength under conditions of bioenvironment response determines of application areas of such coatings and reliability of them usage. Structure and phase composition of hydroxyapatite coating under plasma spraying on titanium substrates and their changing, caused as conditions of forming coating on its increasing, so and conditions of spraying an laminar and turbulent plasma streem were studied. Exact belief about the crystalline structure and phase composition of coating is obtained by methods electronic microscopy and X-ray analysis. Changing of coating structure after sintering in the vacuum and electron beam melting in the vacuum is discussed.
