    • Abstract

       

      This paper describes the method of producing plasma sprayed coatings of hydroxy apatite (HA) on metallic substrates of Ti-6Al-4V. Hydroxy apatite is a material which has similar composition to that of the mineral phase of the human bone. Poor mechanical properties however inhibits its use in the load bearing applications. The powders prepared in our laboratory are sprayed using a plasma spray torch operating in ambient. The deposited coatings are charaterized by X-ray diffraction and found to retain HA in the coatings as per requirements.
