Abstract: SummaryFour self-curing acrylic hone cements were surveyed by infrared, solubility, viscometry, quantitative metallography, microscopy, and physical testing techniques: CMW, Palacos R, Sulfix-6, and Surgical Simplex P. Results show that these hone cements were primarily composed of poly(methy1 methacrylate) and that no crosslinking was evident. Solubility analysis confirmed this latter observation, as the hone cements dissolved completely except for a small insoluble fraction, ,which was identified as the rad…
