PEEK-OPTIMA Reinforced

Enhanced mechanical strength and stiffness

This versatile, implantable compound offers similar processing capabilities to PEEK-OPTIMA Natural, but with enhanced strength and stiffness. It is composed of short carbon fibers dispersed within a PEEK-OPTIMA Natural polymer matrix to provide properties well suited for distal or humeral radius plates.

PEEK-OPTIMA Reinforced features:

  • Exceptional fiber-to-matrix bond strength that provides higher strength than PEEK-OPTIMA Natural Polymers
  • Bone-like stiffness that can reduce stress shielding
  • Proven biocompatibility safe for long-term implantation
  • Radiolucency with no imaging artifact
  • Extensive history of use in FDA-approved, long-term implantable devices dating from 1999
  • Offered in granule forms
