Nucleation is complete when all the small crystals, which have grown with a random orientation, impinge on one another forming a fine-grained, pore free, solid, crystalline structure. 0 μm with at least 90% crystalline material present. Glass-ceramics, like glass, have negligible porosity and mechanical properties that are intermediate between those of a glass and those of engineering ceramics such as alumina and zirconia [2, 4]. The advantages of glass ceramics include a low coefficient of expansion – giving good resistance to thermal shock – combined with relatively high mechanical strength properties and thermal conductivity.

Despite subsequent cleaning, it is possible for some of the blasting medium to remain embedded in the surface of the substrate. G. Turner Fig. 22 An SEM micrograph of an as-received VPS HA coating penetrate the thickness of the subsequent spray coating. A major advantage of applying thermal spray coatings to metallic stems is seen as their potential to encourage interlocking of the metal stem with the surrounding bone. In this way the micromotion at the interface between the prosthetic stem and the bone will be minimized and thus the potential problem of loosening reduced.
