Water Absorption and Mechanical Properties of Cements Based on Poly (Methyl Methacrylate) (PMMA) as Function of Hydroxyapatite (HA) Content
The purpose of this study is the obtaining of different orthopedic materials and chemical and mechanical characterization. The chemical tests used were setting time, water absorption and from the point of view of mechanical properties the Young modulus, compressive strength, and maximum strength. Also, the surface of orthopedic bioceramics materials was characterized by porosity test.
