X-ray detectable plastics

Ensinger's X-ray materials are TECAPEEK MT XRO (PEEK) and TECASON P MT XRO (PPSU). Both plastics are manufactured in many standard colors, produced to suit the customer order. This allows greater flexibility when designing your applications, e.g., to be able to easily distinguish between different instruments and sizes or to differentiate from competitor's products by color branding. 
With its X-ray opaque XRO materials, Ensinger meets the challenging demands of minimally invasive and image-controlled surgery whilst also offering additional safety and security during surgical operations. X-ray plastics are used for a variety of instruments, such as tools and trial sizes, where clear visibility of components is advantageous.

Ensinger's x-ray materials

TECAPEEK MT XRO (PEEK) and TECASON P MT XRO (PPSU) are medical grade plastics with good visibility and radiography.  is a medical grade PPSU with good visibility and radiography. 

A contrast medium added to the standard TECAPEEK MT and TECASON P MT lines permits clear visibility of compo­nents under fluoroscopy and X-ray radiation. It provides the surgeon with a precise pic­ture of their instruments or of orthopaedic trial implants during image controlled procedures.
