In addition to these patents, the patent portfolio of DSM Dyneema covers more than 175 UHMWPE fiber and fabric related inventions, protected by some 1500 individual patents and patent applications in several countries of the world.
For over five decades, UHMWPE has been used as the plastic bearing couple in TJA components due to its toughness, durability, and biological inertness.
Direct SEM is not particularly effective on non-conducting high-performance fibers like UHMWPE and Kevlar; a metal coating must be applied to the fibers to prevent melting by the electron beam, and the technique only reports topographical information.
We passed UHMWPE cables from the central laminectomy area to the third and fourth posterior sacral foramina using a sublaminar wire technique.

The above shortcomings of PA6 can be compensated by blending it with UHMWPE, which has high strength and modulus, high barrier properties to moisture, good wear resistance, and excellent impact strength at low temperature previously mentioned.
The tibial component consisted of the titanium alloy tibial tray and the ultra high molecular weight polyethylene UHMWPE insert [7, 10].
Oral and Muratoglu produced crosslinked, wear- and oxidation-resistant, tough, and ductile UHMWPE materials by localized, high-temperature melting.
In this study, we reported the PMMA/CaO coating evaluation by its wear, friction, and microhardness on ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) substrates.
