The granulometric composition of a hydroxyapatite powder has been investigated. The initial powder has been classified into particle size ranges (0.1-10, 10-20, 20-30, and 50-300 μm). Coatings prepared from a hydroxyapatite powder of different size have been deposited by the detonation gas spraying technique. The structure and phase composition of the coatings have been studied. Changing the initial granulometric composition of the powder mixture is shown to provide control over the sprayed surface roughness.
