Two methods of TiO2 addition were applied to prepare hydroxyapatite/TiO2 (HA/TiO2) composite, i.e., in-situ hydrolysis TiO2 in HA powders (N-HA/TiO2) and mixing commercial nano-sized HA and TiO2 powder (C-HA/TiO2). Effects of TiO2 addition methods and sintering temperatures on phase, microstructure and microhardness were investigated for pressureless sintered HA/TiO2 composites, and pure HA was investigated for comparison. Results show that TiO2 from both in-situ hydrolysis and mixing commercial powder presented similar effects on phase structures and composition, and trended to chemically react with HA in the HA/TiO2 composites at high sintering temperature. Weight loss for different composites was investigated by thermal analysis. Sintering behavior for two different composite was also discussed. The TiO2 from in-situ hydrolysis can effectively enhance the TiO2 distribution and densification for the N-HA/TiO2 composites. Both two different composites showed typical grain growth and pore formation with the increase of sintering temperature. The N-HA/TiO2 composite had a lower porosity, higher shrinkage and microhardness than that of C-HA/TiO2 composite at sintering temperature from 700 °C to 1100 °C.
