Chirulen® and Extrulen® UHMW-PE
MediTECH is a leading supplier of Chirulen® and Extrulen® UHMW-PE products for the manufacture of long-term orthopedic implants, primarily as a dynamic joint liner within hip, knee, and shoulder replacements. These materials exhibit the superior physical and mechanical properties of premium medical grade thermoplastics and are manufactured with superior cleanliness and consistency.
Both ram-extruded Extrulen® and compression molded Chirulen® can be enhanced with antioxidants and crosslinking.
Zeniva® PEEK is a high-performance biocompatible thermoplastic used in highly loaded static implants. The primary applications for this implantable PEEK material are in medical devices such as spinal fusion cages, suture anchors, craniomaxillofacial reconstruction, and total knee replacements, as well as dental implants such as abutments, crowns, bridges, and frameworks.
Unlike implants made of metal alloys, Zeniva® PEEK implants exhibit a modulus similar to cortical bone – improving the comfort of the patient and extending the lifetime of the implant with greater stability and reduced wear.
