PEEK-OPTIMA™ Wear Performance

Benefits of PEEK-OPTIMA™ Wear Performance Polymer

PEEK-OPTIMA Wear Performance Polymer* is specifically designed to meet the critical demands of orthopedic joint arthroplasty.  The polymer combines the material properties of PEEK-OPTIMATM Natural with carbon fiber technology to provide superior wear resistance against hard counter surfaces, such as metal and ceramic.

Superior Wear Resistance

Superior wear performance against hard counter faces, backed by accepted and validated wear-screening tests.1

Elasticity Similar to Bone

With a bone-like modulus2, PEEK-OPTIMA Wear Performance helps minimize stress shielding and stimulates bone healing.

Strong and Durable

The polymer is highly resistant to creep3 and fatigue and can be sterilized repeatedly without degradation.1
