... a cobalt-chromium or titanium alloy; a polymeric wear surface made of ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE, ASTM F648); and a metal tibial component to which the polyethylene is attached. The femoral component articulates against the UHMWPE tibial cup, which in turn is anchored to the tibia...

... as reported in literature. Though the experimental conditions used in these tests were different, some trends may be noticed. Polybenzimidazole (PBI) and ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) show, among all polymers, very high wear resistance. Extremely poor wear resistance is demonstrated...

... for the PDMS is observed that provides an indication of the molecular weight of this contaminant. When looking at TOF-SIMS spectra, two things should be kept in mind. First, this technique is only sampling the outer few atomic layers of the sample and thus highlights any impurities present on the surface...
