Our wide range of biocompatible polymer materials and compounds are each designed to meet the specific and rigorous demands of implantable medical devices. PEEK materials are tailored to offer superior performance in a variety of applications including spine, orthopedic, trauma, dental and specialty devices. Innovative PEEK materials and our in-depth manufacturing knowledge combined with application expertise supports medical device companies to bring leading edge devices to market and open up new areas of growth.
Our biocompatible PEEK-OPTIMATM polymers are a leading choice for applications including spinal interbody fusion devices & anterior cervical plates
Delivering next generation technologies for fracture fixation and reducing implant failure, our carbon fiber composite trauma solutions are benefiting patients worldwide with a less stiff material compared to metal
Short and long-term implantable solutions for cardiovascular, neurological and connected drug delivery devices such as diabetes management and respiratory devices
All the benefits of PEEK-OPTIMATM Natural plus Hydroxyapatite (HA) crystals embedded throughout the material, a well-known osteo-conductive material. Unlike interbody fusion devices that are coated, PEEK-OPTIMATM HA Enhanced devices have hydroxyapatite crystals on all surfaces which results in earlier bone on-growth and greater new bone formation on a fully osteoconductive implant. Key benefits include:
A carbon fiber reinforced PEEK polymer compound to increase strength while reducing stress shielding by more closely matching cortical bone stiffness. Short carbon fibers are dispersed within the PEEK-OPTIMATM Natural matrix enhancing mechanical and physical properties for more demanding load-bearing implants and applications. Benefits include3:
An innovative composite formed by continuous carbon fibers dispersed within the PEEK-OPTIMA Natural polymer matrix to enhance mechanical strength and stiffness.
