ISO 5834-2 UHMWPE Implants for surgery Tensile Test Machine
ISO 5834-2 Tensile Testing Machine for Implants for surgery -UHMWPE- Part 2: Molded forms
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2016. Therefore this version remains current.
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-molded (near net shape), irradiated or finished products or products manufactured from polyethylene blended with additives or from blending of different forms of polyethylene.
Tensile testing is done according to :
Plastics — Determination of tensile properties — Part 2: Test conditions for moulding and extrusion plastics
ISO 527-2:2012 specifies the test conditions for determining the tensile properties of moulding and extrusion plastics, based upon the general principles given in ISO 527‑1.
