The combination of spark plasma sintering (SPS) and selective laser melting (SLM) was introduced to produce composites where silver-doped titania ceramics was reinforced with ordered titanium alloy lattice structures. The objective was to create bulk materials with an ordered hierarchical design that were expected to exhibit improved mechanical properties along with antibacterial effect. The prepared composites were evaluated for mechanical properties as well as for antibacterial activity towards Escherichia coli. The developed Ti6Al4V-TiO2/Ag hybrids showed increased ultimate strength when compared to ceramics without metal reinforcement. The used method is a feasible route for adding ceramic reinforcement to 3D printed metals. View this paper.
