Calcium Migration in Dense Alumina Aged in Water and Physiological Media
Flexural strength and relative Ca concentration at the external surface were measured for a dense alumina aged in deionized water and Ringer's soluton at 40 degree C for 420 days and at 80 degree C for 315 days. Changes in Ca concentration at the external surface and flexural strength during aging were attributed to the dissolution of a glass phase of unknown composition, believed to contain the Ca impurity.
