Bio-Nanocomposites: Parepartion Technology and Applications
Keywords:Nano-composites, polymer, PMMA, HAMgO, Compression Strength,Young Modulus.
In this paper, combinations of a ceramic mixture with a polymer were developed to be used as a substitute
for damaged bones or teeth. Overlays were prepared using the manual mixing method, followed by the use
of ultrasound technology to ensure uniform distribution of the powder within the polymer. The polymer
(PMMA) is supported with a ceramic powder (HAMgO) prepared using an effective mechanical mixing
method. Where the percentages were used for consolidation, starting from (1%-4%). The results of the tests
showed mechanical corrosion or the so-called wear and tear of a significant improvement for the reinforced
polymeric compounds as the corrosion rate decreased to less than half at 4%. Likewise, the results of the
particle hardness examination showed a successive increase in the percentages compared to the polymer
base material. The results of the durability of compressibility and the Yunk coefficient showed a direct
increase with the increase in the percentages of the added ceramic powder. The results were interpreted
using the scanning electron microscope and by relying on the density values approved from the results of
