PEEK-OPTIMA Wear Performance

Redefining orthopedic device performance possibilities.

Designed for bearing applications against hard counter faces, such as metal and ceramics, PEEK-OPTIMA Wear Performance* combines the excellent material properties of PEEK-OPTIMA Natural with carbon fiber technology. In order to meet the critical demands of orthopedic joint arthroplasty, PEEK-OPTIMA Wear Performance offers:

  • Superior wear performance against hard counter faces
  • Backed by accepted and validated wear-screening tests
  • Design and processing versatility ideal for new arthroplasty devices
  • High resistance to creep and fatigue
  • Modulus similar to bone for reduced stress shielding and to stimulate bone healing
  • Sterilize repeatedly with no degradation using steam, ethylene oxide, gamma or Sterrad® plasma
  • Compatible with x-ray, CT and MRI imaging techniques
