Abstract: An implant coating must be biocompatible, not compromise the long term function and success of the prosthesis and must be strong enough to withstand and transfer all loads without delamination. In this study, six different tricalcium silicate cements were investigated in the mixed and sintered form while hydroxyapatite was used as a control. The properties of each material were studied carefully to propose an innovative coating material and coating process. The hypothesis is that there is no difference between the prototype mixed and sintered cements. It is also hypothesised that there will be no difference between the prototype cements and the control hydroxyapatite.
