BS ISO 5834-3:2019

Implants for surgery. Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene. Accelerated ageing methods

Status : Current   Published : February 2019



What is this standard about?

This document specifies a test method for investigating the oxidative stability of ultra-high-molecularweight polyethylene (UHMWPE) materials as a function of processing and sterilization method. This document describes a laboratory method for accelerated ageing of UHMWPE specimens and components for total joint prostheses. The UHMWPE is aged at elevated temperature and at elevated oxygen pressure, to accelerate oxidation of the material and thereby allow for the evaluation of its potential long-term chemical and mechanical stability.
