The combinations of good biocompatibility of hydroxyapatite and good mechanical properties of 316L steel should lead to obtain better biomaterial. 316L-hydroxyapatite composites were produced by the PM technology. Microstructure and properties of these materials were affected by chemical composition of powders mixture and sintering temperature. Sintering temperature of 1240°C and hydroxyapatite addition of 3 wt. % provide to obtain the best density and hardness sintered 316L-hydroxyapatite compositions.
