Standard Specification for Acrylic Bone Cement
Scope/Abstract
1.1 This specification covers self-curing resins used primarily for the fixation of internal orthopedic prostheses. The mixture may be used in either the predough or dough stage in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations.

1.2 Units of premeasured powder and liquid are supplied in a form suitable for mixing. The mixture then sets in place.

1.3 While a variety of copolymers and comonomers may be incorporated, the composition of the set cement shall contain poly(methacrylic acid esters) as its main ingredient.

1.4 This specification covers compositional, physical performance, and biocompatibility as well as packaging requirements. The biocompatibility of acrylic bone cement as it has been traditionally formulated and used has been reported in the literature (1, 2).2
