Implants for surgery -- Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene -- Part 2: Moulded forms
This standard has been revised by ISO 5834-2:2019
ISO 5834-2:2011 specifies the requirements and corresponding test methods for moulded forms, e.g. sheets and rods, made from ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) for use in the manufacture of surgical implants.
ISO 5834-2:2011 is not applicable to direct-moulded (near net shape), irradiated or finished products or products manufactured from polyethylene blended with additives or from blending of different forms of polyethylene.
