WHY SURGEONS CHOOSE OUR POLYMER SOLUTIONS

PEEK-OPTIMA™ polymers are among the most popular advanced biomaterials for applications requiring more complex components that are thinner, yet strong and lightweight. 

BONE-LIKE MODULUS

PEEK-OPTIMATM features a modulus similar to human bone, which reduces stress shielding and leads to improved physiological loading.1

BIOCOMPATIBILITY

PEEK-OPTIMATM biocompatibility in conformance with  ISO 10993-1, for use in the manufacture of medical devices for long-term implantable dental applications.3

IMAGING

PEEK-OPTIMATM polymer offers Natural radiolucency and compatibility with medical imaging techniques allow healing site visualization without artifacts.3-5

Peek-optima™ Natural polymer

PEEK-OPTIMA™ polymer blends proven performance with superior wear, safety, and comfort.Since Invibio introduced PEEK-OPTIMA as the first implantable  PEEK polymer in 1999, it has earned the confidence and gained the acceptance of the global medical community.

The properties of PEEK-OPTIMA™ Natural, used in specific-patient implants for cranioplasty offers many advantages over conventional materials such as Titanium and PMMA.

Eminently compatible with CAD/CAM milling processes, it offers implant fixation precision1, strong2-4, bio-inert and biocompatible7,8, offers patients great aesthetic outcomes5 and comfort due to a lack of thermal conductivity3,7. Surgeons benefit too with our material’s natural radiolucency with CT and MRI, allowing  post-operative diagnostic imaging.1,9,10
