Mechanical properties of polyvinylpyrrolidone hydrogel dressings were investigated as a function of production factor combinations. The experimental results show that the peak-load depends strongly on the PVP concentration, the break-strain is inversely dependent on the radiation dose and the modulus of elasticity depends mainly on the PVP concentration. © 1995.
