The material of chosen composition demonstrates good sinterability and reveals appropriate bulk mechanical properties.
They can have unusual properties such as strength, hardness, ductility, sinterability, size-dependent light absorption, and reactivity.
Even sometimes some amount of additives can be added to improve the sinterability and mechanical properties without affecting the bioactivity(17).
Liu, Park and Lefas (19) say that the zero shear viscosity seems to be one of the most important material parameters in rotational molding of foams, as a low zero shear viscosity will aid the sinterability of the powder and remove trapped air bubbles, which can induce cell coarsening.
