Improvement of mechanical, thermal and biological properties of acrylic-based bone cements by adding various chemicals is a novel research area. Among these additives, hydroxyapatite (HA) is proven to be a biocompatible and osteoconductive material and it strongly integrates with bone. In this study, HA-containing acrylic bone cements were prepared and thermal and mechanical properties of the resultant cements were examined.
