*  Long-term cell-mediated protein release from calcium phosphate ceramics
Efficient delivery of growth factors from carrier biomaterials depends critically on the release kinetics of the proteins that constitute the carrier. Immobilizing growth factors to calcium phosphate ceramics has been attempted by direct adsorption and usually resulted in a rapid and passive release of the superficially adherent proteins. The insufficient retention of growth factors limited their bioavailability and their efficacy in the treatment of bone regeneration. In this study, a coprecipitation technique of proteins and calcium phosphate was employed to modify the delivery of proteins from biphasic calcium phosphate (BCP) ceramics. To this end, tritium-labeled bovine serum albumin ([3H]BSA) was utilized as a model protein to analyze the coprecipitation efficacy and the release kinetics of the protein from the carrier material. Conventional adsorption of [3H]BSA resulted in a rapid and passive release of the protein from BCP ceramics, whereas the ...

*  Bioglass - Wikipedia
Bioglass 45S5, commonly referred to by its commercial name Bioglass, is a glass specifically composed of 45 wt% SiO2, 24.5 wt% CaO, 24.5 wt% Na2O, and 6.0 wt% P2O5. Glasses are non-crystalline amorphous solids that are commonly composed of silica-based materials with other minor additives. Compared to soda-lime glass (commonly used, as in windows or bottles), Bioglass 45S5 contains less silica and higher amounts of calcium and phosphorus. The 45S5 name signifies glass with 45 weight % of SiO2 and 5:1 molar ratio of calcium to phosphorus. This high ratio of calcium to phosphorus promotes formation of apatite crystals; calcium and silica ions can act as crystallization nuclei. Lower Ca:P ratios do not bond to bone. Bioglass 45S5's specific composition is optimal in biomedical applications because of its similar composition to that of hydroxyapatite, the mineral component of bone. This similarity provides Bioglass' ability to be integrated with living bone. This composition of bioactive glass is ...

*  Tissue Response to the Implantation of Two New Machinable Calcium Phosphate Ceramics
Keith G. Smith, BDS, FDSRCS/Christopher D. Franklin, BDS, PhD, FDSRCS, MRCPath/Ric van Noort, BSc, DPhil/David J. Lamb, BDS, MDS, FDSRCS The early histologic response to implantation of two newly developed machinable calcium phosphate ceramics was investigated. One of the materials is a machinable form of hydroxyapatite and the other a new machinable glass ceramic. One month following implantation, new bone had grown onto the surface of both implants. Further bone deposition and remodeling occurred during the ensuing 2 months. In the future, machinable qualities of these materials may make them extremely useful as implant materials.

*  Ceramic Coatings
... ARE AN ALTERNATIVE TO organic or polymer based coatings for selected surface coating applications. When protecting a surface, it is usually less expensive to use organic coatings rather than other materials such as ceramic coatings. However, organic paints have limitations and will not meet all service requirements. Though more expensive, for some applications ceramic coatings may be a more suitable form of protection. Vitreous (glassy) ceramic coatings are chosen for application over a substrate for one or more of several reasons [1]. These reasons for selecting a ceramic coating in preference to an organic paint include rendering the surface more chemically inert, impervious to liquids and gases, more readily cleanable, and more resistant to service temperature, abrasion, and scratching. The chemical durability of ceramic coatings in service substantially exceeds that of organic paints [2]. Vitreous coatings are formulated to be resistant to a variety of reagents, from acids ...

*  Iron-phosphate-based chemically bonded phosphate ceramics for mixed waste stabilization - Digital Library
In an effort to develop chemically bonded phosphate ceramics for mixed waste stabilization, a collaborative project to develop iron-phosphate based ceramics has been initiated between Argonne National Laboratory and the V. G. Khlopin Radium Institute in St. Petersburg, Russia. The starter powders are oxides of iron that are generated as inexpensive byproduct materials in the iron and steel industry. They contain iron oxides as a mixture of magnetite (Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4}) and haematite (Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3}). In this initial phase of this project, both of these compounds were investigated independently. Each was reacted with phosphoric acid solution to form iron phosphate ceramics. In the case of magnetite, the reaction was rapid. Adding ash as the waste component containing hazardous contaminants resulted in a dense and hard ceramic rich in glassy phase. On the other hand, the reaction of phosphoric acid solution with a mixture of haematite and ash waste ...

*  Patent US5776235 - Thick opaque ceramic coatings - Google Patents
Thick opaque ceramic coatings are used to protect delicate microelectronic devices against excited energy sources, radiation, light, abrasion, and wet etching techniques. The thick opaque ceramic coating are prepared from a mixture containing phosphoric anhydride, i.e., phosphorous pentoxide (P2 O5), and a pre-ceramic silicon-containing material. It is preferred to also include tungsten carbide (WC) and tungsten metal (W) in the coating mixture. The coating is pyrolyzed to form a ceramic SiO2 containing coating. A second coating of plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposited (PECVD) silicon carbide (SiC), diamond, or silicon nitride (Si3 N4), can be applied over the thick opaque ceramic coating to provide hermeticity. These coatings are useful on patterned wafers, electronic devices, and electronic substrates. The thick opaque ceramic coating is unique because it is resistant to etching using wet chemicals, i.e., acids such as H3 PO4 and H2 SO4, or bases.

A method for depositing a coating of a dense ceramic material is disclosed. The coating may be an oxide or other refractory ceramic material. A ceramic starting material is melted and refined by heating with an electron beam in vacuum. The refined material is evaporated and deposited on a heated substrate to form a dense ceramic coating. In particular, a durable ceramic thermal barrier coating on a superalloy turbine part may be formed by coating the part with a metal layer which is oxidized to form alumina and depositing a dense ceramic layer followed by an overcoating of a columnar ceramic material.

*  Processing Routes to Macroporous Ceramics: A Review - Studart - 2006 - Journal of the American Ceramic Society - Wiley Online...
Macroporous ceramics with pore sizes from 400 nm to 4 mm and porosity within the range 20%-97% have been produced for a number of well-established and emerging applications, such as molten metal filtration, catalysis, refractory insulation, and hot gas filtration. These applications take advantage of the unique properties achieved through the incorporation of macropores into solid ceramics. In this article, we review the main processing routes that can be used for the fabrication of macroporous ceramics with tailored microstructure and chemical composition. Emphasis is given to versatile and simple approaches that allow one to control the microstructural features that ultimately determine the properties of the macroporous material. Replica, sacrificial template, and direct foaming techniques are described and compared in terms of microstructures and mechanical properties that can be achieved. Finally, directions to future investigations on the processing of ...

*  Glass and Ceramics
Ceramics and glass, in general, should be stored and displayed on sturdy, level surfaces that are secure from bumps and jarring. Objects should be covered or enclosed to protect them from dirt and dust. If this is not possible for storage, pieces can be wrapped in acid-free, lignin-free tissue and stored in acid-free cardboard boxes. Newspaper and acidic newsprint paper can cause discoloration and stains and should not be used for wrapping or long term storage of ceramics and glass. Any box used for storage should be strong enough to support the weight of the objects inside and should have a secure bottom. The container should also be large enough to enclose the entire object. Objects should not be allowed to bump or fall against each other.. Ceramics are often displayed vertically on walls with spring- loaded mounting brackets. These brackets may exert too much pressure on ceramic plates and often cause cracks and damage. Other vertical plate racks are made ...
