Abstract

The development of porous high-integrity device manufactured by hot isostactic pressing for orthopaedic applications was described. The effects of process variables and powder particle size fraction were characterized using optical metallography, scanning electron microscopy and image analysis. It was observed that the morphology and distribution of the pores is uniform and independent of orientation. It was shown that the degree of porosity and the size of these pores could be controlled by the precise processing conditions and the characteristics of the powder used.
