ASTM F2791: Standard Guide for Assessment of Surface Texture of Non-Porous Biomaterials in Two Dimensions

ISO 7206-2: Implants for surgery - Partial and total hip joint prostheses: Articulating surfaces made of metallic, ceramic and plastic materials  


The test method describes some of the most common methods for measuring the topographical features, for example the roughness of biomaterial surfaces.
Using a stylus instrument the surface texture of metals (including metal coatings), plastics (including coatings) and ceramics can be analyzed at EndoLab.
