Evaluation of the wear resistance with peek and zirconia ceramics
Sedláček R., Rosenkrancová J.
pages 308 - +6p., full text

This article deals with very specific wear resistance testing of the biomaterials used for surgical implants. The abrasion is indispensable parameter for evaluation of the mechanical properties of these materials. This type of testing is very important for appreciation of new direction in total knee replacement, based on a new combination of biomaterials. The special wear resistance test is called "RING ON DISC". The experiment was carried out on the system MTS 858 MINI BIONIX with two types of materials - zirconia ceramics and PEEK.
