Proven clinical history
Versatile polymers for a range of next-generation components
PEEK-OPTIMATM polymers have the potential to be used in a broad range of applications including IPG housings & enclosures, neural interfaces, lead and leadless devices and telemetry components
Masterfile of biocompatibility and clinical evidence, from over 15 million devices implanted over 20 years, in a wide range of human tissue types.
Exceptional performance as an insulator, with minimal interference and minimal loss over changing conditions such as temperature, humidity, and frequency.
Very stable dielectric properties (Dk, Df) over a wide range of temperatures, humidities and frequencies to support connectivity and telemetry
Whenever a challenging combination of material properties is required in implantable devices, high-performing PEEK polymers offer a range of compelling mechanical, chemical and electrical attributes & biocompatibility.
From the invention of PEEK over 40 years ago, Victrex has continually pioneered new PAEK-based polymers, materials and solutions that have transformed markets, delivering global impact in the toughest environments.
We bring transformational & sustainable solutions that address world material challenges every day.
