Hydroxyapatite Biomaterials Explore New Applications in Coatings and Bone Cements

A new range of hydroxyapatite (HA) biomaterials have potential new uses in antimicrobial and osteopromotive coatings. They could also be used in the development of bone cements with altered structural features that include toughness, solubility, and porosity. Developed by Ceram, the materials have different biological properties. The company changed the basic chemistry of the material, while keeping its physical structure, by putting different elements into HA.
Ceram has filed a patent on the material and is looking for manufacturing partners. It is also open to forming agreements with research institutions to find new applications for the material.
