PEEK is a valuable biomaterial and has been used extensively in medical applications. It has excellent properties with the combination of strength, purity and chemical resistance. Due to its relatively high stable chemical structure, PEEK is the only bio-compatible thermoplastic material capable of withstanding high doses of ionizing-radiation, chemical as well as mechanical stresses during sterilization and chemical cleaning.
PEEK is already used for the production of many complex components within medical devices such as:
• Spinal devices
• Kidney dialysis machine components
• Analytical equipment components
• Anesthesia equipment components
• Hearing aid components
• Dental implants
• Heart valves
• Elbow implants
• Spinal implants
• Artificial hips
• Finger implants
• Knee joints
• Bone screws and pins
• Spinal fusion devices
• Reinforcing rods
