Benefits of PEEK-OPTIMA™ Natural Polymer
PEEK-OPTIMA Natural polymer has a track record of more than 20 years for safety, biocompatibility and biostability, supported by thousands of available implantable devices, worldwide. No other implantable PEEK is as extensively used in US FDA 510(k), CE-marked and other regulatory body cleared devices around the world.
PEEK-OPTIMA Natural provides artifact-free imaging and unobstructed views when using X-ray, CT and MRI imaging techniques.
Stiffness Similar to Bone
With a bone-like modulus, PEEK-OPTIMA Natural helps minimize stress shielding and stimulate bone healing.
Strong and Durable
PEEK-OPTIMA Natural is extremely strong, durable and highly resistant to creep1 and fatigue. The polymer can withstand sterilization repeatedly without degradation.2
