Sequential slip casting was used for creating of laminates in the ZrО2-Y2O3-Ce2O3-Al2O3 system. It was shown, that the layers microhardness varied from 8100 MPa up to 12700 MPa. Bending strength of composite is 900 MPa. It is possible to design various bioinert implants at purposeful control of the laminates properties in the ZrО2-Y2O3-Ce2O3-Al2O3 system.
