Due to its wide range of possible applications in current technology, hydroxyapatite, as a biomaterial, has been of great interest to scholars. Improvement in mechanical properties can be achieved by addition of zirconia, partially stabilized by yttrium, into a resistant oxide phase. The present study describes the microstructure and phases which are typical of composite coatings after plasma spraying.
