Ketron® LSG CA30 PEEK


Ketron® LSG CA30 PEEK (Life Science Grade) stock shapes are made from 30% carbon fiber reinforced PEEK resin, pre-assessed for biocompatibility. The stock shape is also pre-assessed for biocompatibility for up to 24 hours contact with body and tissue according to USP VI and ISO 10993.

Ketron® LSG CA30 PEEK shapes exhibit exceptional stiffness, mechanical strength, and dimensional stability, as well as optimal resistance to wear and creep.

The components are also sterilizable by means of steam (autoclave), dry heat, EtO (Ethylene Oxide), plasma, and gamma- and X-ray irradiation. These attributes make this material an excellent candidate for applications in the medical and bioprocessing fields, such as nailing target devices, grips, adapters, and washers.
