X-Ray opaque biocompatible PPSU black

TECASON P MT XRO black is a specifically developed, x-ray detectable biocompatible PPSU plastic (Polyphenylsulfone). With this product line, we meet the challenging demands of minimally invasive and image-controlled surgery. A contrast agent added to the standard product line of medical PPSU material enables x-ray opaque properties and permits clear visibility of components under fluoroscopy and x-ray radiation. It allows the surgeon a precise picture of their medical devices or of orthopaedic trial implants during image-controlled procedures. PPSU medical grade plastic has improved performance in terms of temperature, impact strength, chemical resistance, and shows exceptional resistance to repeated steam autoclaving without loss of dimensional stability, or physical properties. TECASON P MT XRO has been tested in line with the requirements of ISO 10993 for medical products coming into contact with bodily fluids, bone substance or dentin for up to 24 hours. USP Class VI information is available for raw material. This product line is available in various colours.
