Highly crosslinked polyethylene
is safe for use in total knee arthroplasty.

"At the time, the highly crosslinked polyethylene
is where I thought the industry was going.
While Stryker was the first orthopedic company to release a crosslinked polyethylene
, it has not been the only company to explore crosslinking processes with the potential for improving wear resistance.
"This was not only time and cost-intensive, but there was no guarantee that the end result would be satisfactory, neither from a quality nor from a production ficiency point of view." PE-X pipes are used in gas and domestic water distribution systems, district heating and other industrial applications that benefit from the high temperature and chemical resistance of crosslinked polyethylene
, as well as its flexibility, very high impact resistance at low temperatures and high creep resistance.
Their obvious candidate was crosslinked polyethylene
. Irritating the ultrahigh-molecular-weight polymer injected enough energy to break some of its long molecular chains.
E-BEAM Services, Inc., reports that stress- and crack resistant crosslinked polyethylene
pipe (PEX) is finding new use in natural gas service.
Examples include crosslinked polyethylene
and vulcanized rubber powders.
According to Zimmer, a paper published earlier this month reported that, at 96m cycles of in vitro wear testing, Vivacit-E Advanced Bearing Technology featuring Vitamin E grafted highly crosslinked polyethylene
hip acetabular liners from Zimmer maintained a significant wear rate reduction of 95%, with no cracking, delamination or fracture observed on the samples evaluated.
Those patents (12-15) describe processes for producing foam sheets using scraps or chips from crosslinked polyethylene
Stryker officials claim the implant includes the first highly crosslinked polyethylene
glenoids on the market.
