radio opaque ppsu

TECASON P MT XRO red is another colored version of x-ray detectable biocompatible PPSU plastic (Polyphenylsulfone). X-ray opaque properties permit clear visibility of components under fluoroscopy and x-ray radiation, and allows the surgeon a precise picture of medical devices or of orthopaedic trial implants. TECASON P MT XRO has been tested to the requirements of ISO 10993 for medical products coming into contact with bodily fluids, bone substance, or dentin for up to 24 hours. This product line is available in various colors.
