Benefits of PEEK-OPTIMA™ Reinforced Polymer
This implantable compound is composed of short carbon fibers dispersed within a PEEK-OPTIMATM Natural polymer matrix. The resulting material has enhanced mechanical and physical properties for more demanding load bearing implants and applications.
Strong and Durable
Excellent wear performance compared to ceramic, metal and polymeric counter faces to ensure safe, long-term implantation.1
Stiffness Similar to Bone
An exceptional fiber-to-matrix bond which can reduce the occurrence of stress shielding by more closely matching cortical bone stiffness.1
Artifact-free imaging providing unobstructed views of the healing site when using X-ray, CT and MRI imaging techniques
