Sample text

Multi-phase composite PE-HA sol-gel glasses and ceramics involves much lower temperatures and different types of processing methods, as shown below. Processing of composites differ for each type of composite, as discussed in Chapters 25 and 26. For the reader unfamiliar with ceramic processing, some of the concepts relating thermal processes with microstructural development follow. 1). This requires making a solid object, a coating or particulates (powders). 6). When a shape is made from powders it is called forming.

Comparative tests in hip joint simulators have demonstrated tribologic superiority of high-purity alumina ceramic systems compared with metalto-metal and metal-to-UHMWPE combinations. 3. In the case of alumina–UHMWPE articulating surfaces, the 20 µm refer to observations of explanted components and include only wear measurements. 3. Average Annual Wear Rates of Articulating Surfaces in Total Hip Prosthesis. 3. Time dependence of (-) coefficient of friction and (---) index of wear of alumina–alumina versus metal–PE hip joint (in vitro testing).
