Eurobone 2 is an injectable synthetic cement that can withstand up to 24 MPa compression.
It is a paste formed by a water-based reaction between an acid calcium phosphate salt and an alkaline calcium phosphate salt.
The Eurobone 2 STD formulation is injectable for a period of 2 minutes and hardens in about 8 minutes.
In both versions, its maximum strength is reached about 24 hours after implantation.
It is characterised by surface osseointegration and slow resorption.
Eurobone 2 is supplied in prefilled syringes that make preparation easier; the powder-to-liquid ratio has been optimised for injectability.
Since it is liquid when injected, Eurobone 2 fills the entire cavity and completely coats the interface between the native bone and the bone substitute.
Since calcium phosphate is naturally radio-opaque, Eurobone 2 is visible as soon as it is injected and until it is resorbed/substituted by newly formed bone.
