Assessment of bulk and surface properties of medical grade UHMWPE based nanocomposites using Nanoindentation and microtensile testing.

Abstract

A thrust on the enhancement of the mechanical properties of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) to enhance its longevity has taken a new direction with the advent of nanomaterials and carbon nanotubes. In the present work, UHMWPE was reinforced by chemically treated multi walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) at different concentrations such as 0.5… (More)
