    Abstract

    Porous implants were sintered of three different grain size fractions of two established bioactive glasses. The sintering parameters for the implants were carefully recorded. The porosity of the implants was measured from SEM-images. The compression strength of the implants was measured with a Crush Tester. The data was used to find the sintering parameters desired in the manufacture of bioactive glasses needed to obtain a specific porosity and mechanical strength.
