ASTM F1839: Standard Specification for Rigid Polyurethane Foam for Use as a Standard Material for Testing Orthopaedic Devices and Instruments  

Rigid unicellular polyurethane foam is often used as a standard material for performing mechanical tests of orthopedic devices such as screws or instruments. It is often referenced as “Sawbone”. The bone quality simulated is given by the density of the foam referenced as “grade”. Typical grades for mechanical testing are 15 to 30. ASTM F1839 standardizes the properties of the test blocks by a set of tests such as compressive strength, screw pull-out and others.

email problems with office 365
Dear clients & partners,

Since the end of January, we have heard from some clients who use Office 365 that they are experiencing trouble receiving our emails. Our emails seem to be classified as phishing attempts and, therefore, never reach their inboxes.

If you are also waiting for a reply, please call us at +49 8031 2313230!

We look forward to hearing from you again and hopefully re-establish full communication.
