Silane crosslinked polyethylene for prosthetic applications. II. Creep and wear behaviour and a preliminary moulding test.

Abstract

Creep and wear tests have been carried out on a high density polyethylene crosslinked using a silane. A comparison of the results with those obtained for ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (RCH 1000) indicates the superiority of the crosslinked material. It can be injection moulded without difficulty. It is our conclusion that silane crosslinked polyethylene is an exciting prospect in the field of prosthetic materials.
