Abstract: Ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer (EVA) alone could be used as a binder material for the fabrication of hydroxyapatite (HAP) into intricate shapes for various bone substitute applications. It was observed that as the vinyl acetate content in the polymer was increased from 12 to 28 wt % an increase in the sintered density of the HAP was observed. Retention of the shapes of HAP in the molded form was also observed. (C) 2002 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
