Tensile mechanical properties of polyacetal after one and six months' immersion in Ringer's solution.

Abstract:

The engineering polymer polyacetal (also known as polyoxymethylene) has a long history of clinical use including in the femoral component of the Freeman all-polymer knee replacement. The polymer is a promising material for novel applications including the femoral component of hip resurfacing prostheses. However, no work following the effect on mechanical properties of extended immersion in the physiological environment has been reported. Samples of five grades of polyacetal were obtained and ...
