Transformative PEEK implant material for medical applications

human body scheme


Masterfile of biocompatibility and clinical evidence, from over 15 million devices implanted over 20 years, in a wide range of human tissue types. 

Minimal electrical interference & loss

Exceptional performance as an insulator, with minimal interference and minimal loss over changing conditions such as temperature, humidity, and frequency.

Electrical stability

Very stable dielectric properties (Dk, Df) over a wide range of temperatures, humidities and frequencies to support connectivity and telemetry

Improved visibility under imaging

Radiolucent in X-rays, MRI and other imaging

Hydrolysis resistance

Low moisture absorption (0.05wt%) means components retain dimensions in biological or fluid environments

Lightweight & durable

Able to resist impact, and for continued use over time, even in miniaturised parts under load
PEEK granules
