Proven Bone Cement for Over 60 Years

Already in 1959, PALACOS® R was introduced by Heraeus (Kulzer) as the first bone cement in Germany. This marked the beginning of the success story of PALACOS® bone cements, which have been used in over 34 million procedures worldwide to date1 and are the best studied.2 The proven formula with chlorophyll as the "surgical green" colorant (food color E141) has remained the same and is the basis for the different variants of Heraeus Medical bone cements.


PALACOS® R is indicated for use in arthroplastic procedures of the hip, knee, and other joints for the fixation of polymer or metallic prosthetic implants to living bone.
