Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 10 May 2000
Status: inactive
Page Count: 6
ICS Code (Implants for surgery, prosthetics and orthotics): 11.040.40
scope:

1.1 This practice describes a laboratory method using a weight-loss (that is, mass-loss; see X1.4) technique for evaluating the wear properties of polymeric materials or devices which are being considered for use as bearing surfaces of human joint replacement prostheses, or both. The test specimens are evaluated in a device intended to simulate the tribological conditions encountered in the human joint; for example, use of a fluid such as bovine serum, or equivalent pseudosynovial fluid shown to simulate similar wear mechanisms and debris generation as found in vivo.
