This paper investigates the effect of IPN surface treatment on the mechanical properties of ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). Traditional UHMWPE was modified by introducing poly-L-lysine (PLL) into their surface and forming a semi-interpenetrating network (IPN). Tensile, creep and fatigue tests were performed on these IPN and the control… CONTINUE READING
