I am interested in using pmma (polymethyl methacrylate) to pot bone ends of
bone-ligament-bone segments extracted from human knees. It is simply to be
used as a bone cement to augment the size of the bone units to make
gripping them easier for mechanical testing. I have found VERY EXPENSIVE
forms of pmma for use in living humans. I was wondering if anyone knew
where to get pmma in a non-sterile/non-medical grade form (hopefully for
much cheaper).
