x-ray opaque ppsu

TECASON P MT XRO combines the excellent property profile of PPSU with a radio opacifer. This additive allows for an additional option to the standard line of colored PPSU materials for orthopedic sizing trials and other devices, and allows for clear visibility of the machined component on fluoroscopy and x-ray. TECASON P MT XRO is available in multiple colors and dimensions.
