New aspects of the effect of size and size distribution on the setting parameters and mechanical properties of acrylic bone cements.

Abstract

The effect of the size and the size distribution of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) beads on the classical kinetic parameters, peak temperature and setting time, for acrylic bone cement formulations prepared with PMMA particles in the range 10-60 microns of average diameter and a relatively wide size distribution is analysed. In addition, the combined… (More)
