Abstract: As previously reported,'q2 a polymer-ceramic composite designed for endosseous implant applications has been developed. The composites were prepared by the free-radical polymerization of an acrylic acid solution and a difunctional acrylate in the presence of 0.3 pm akunina powder. Mechanical testing indicated that the material had a compressive yield strength of 89-102 MPa (13-15 ksi) and an elastic modulus of 2055-2740 MPa (300-400 ksi). The average porosity of the composite was determined to be in the range…
