Development of Bioactive Polyethylene-Apatite Nuclei Composite

Abstract:

Article Preview

Apatite nuclei were precipitated in the pores of the porous polyethylene matrix in 2.0SBF. Apatite was induced by the apatite nuclei inside the pores and on the surface of the composite and grew to the surface of the composite by a soak in 1.0SBF. The formed apatite showed high adhesive strength to the composite probably due to a mechanical interlocking effect between the matrix and the apatite.
