x-ray detectable biocompatible PEEK, green coloured

TECAPEEK MT XRO green combines the excellent property profile of PEEK with a radio opacifier. The addition of this additive to the standard PEEK MT permits clear visibility of components under fluoroscopy and X-ray radiation. Plastic components made from this x-ray detectable material provide the surgeon with a precise picture of his or her instruments or of orthopaedic test implants during image-controlled procedures. According to our MT portfolio (medical grade materials), the XRO product line has been tested in line with the requirements of ISO 10993 for medical products directly in contact with bodily fluids, bone substance and dentin for up to 24 hours. In addition USP Class VI information is available. TECAPEEK MT XRO is available in multiple colours.
