Restricting the ageing degradation of the mechanical properties of gamma irradiated UHMWPE using MWCNTs.

Abstract

Property degradation of the medical grade polymers after gamma irradiation is the primary concern that limits longevity of them. Though the conventional antioxidant material helps to reduce the degradation but it limits the degree of crosslinking of the polymer. The objective of the present work is to study the influence of multi walled carbon nanotubes… (More)
