Abstract

In this study, the wear of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) (Grade RCH 1000) crosslinked by gamma irradiation in acetylene was compared to virgin (non-irradiated) UHMWPE using four different wear configurations: (i) unidirectional motion with a smooth counterface, (ii) multidirectional motion with a smooth counterface, (iii) unidirectional motion with a rough counterface and (iv) multidirectional motion with a rough counterface.
