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 excellent material properties of PEEK-OPTIMA 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.

Stiffness Similar to Bone

With a bone-like modulus1, PEEK-OPTIMA Image Contrast helps minimize stress shielding and stimulate bone healing.

Strong and Durable

The polymer is highly resistant to creep and fatigue, and can be sterilized repeatedly with no degradation.
