High-strength calcium metaphosphate fibers, which are expected to show good biocompatibility, are extracted from crystallized products of ultraphosphate glasses by aqueous leaching. Porous ceramics with skeletons of -Ca(PO3)2 fibers for biomedical use are prepared by the sintering of the fibers. In the present work, porous ceramics having a large porosity of −70% were obtained. The compressive test of these porous ceramics showed that large strains of 0.2–0.3 are requisite for their fracture; the calcium phosphate porous ceramics in this work show much higher flexibility than conventional ceramics. The present work discusses the influence of the preparation conditions of the porous ceramics on their compressive strength behavior.
