    Revision of F2118 - 10 Test Method for Constant Amplitude of Force Controlled Fatigue Testing of Acrylic Bone Cement Materials

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: F2118 - 10

    Developed by Subcommittee: F04.15 | Committee F04 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK42859

    1. Rationale

    1. Provide peak/valley load and displacement data in order to document the loads and displacements each sample experienced during testing. The User will determine the appropriate data acquisition frequency to adequately document the loads and displacements achieved during testing. 2. In order to remove the bubbles formed during mixing of the 2 parts of silicone, the beaker of mixed silicone is placed in vacuum chamber and user should cycle the vacuum on and off for a minimum of four cycles or until all visible bubbles have been removed from the silicone material. 3. The surface finish of the positive blank should be at least .05 microns Ra
