High-performance, biocompatible polymer ideal for medical implants
PEEK (Polyetheretherketone) is an optimal material to use in producing medical devices because it is lightweight, resistant to thermal and ionizing radiation and possesses properties similar to those of human bone.
Achieve better outcomes with implants made from PEEK (Polyetheretherketone)
Improve the biocompatibility of medical devices with implantable PEEK. The lightweight material possesses properties close to the human bone and shows a high temperature resistance. 3D printing in PEEK is much faster than using traditional milling processes and also more compatible with diagnostic imaging. Talk to 3D Systems product development experts to help you select the right PEEK material for your application. We offer four options:
Carbon-fiber-reinforced PEEK (CFR-PEEK)
PEEK with biphasic calcium phosphate (VESTAKEEP® Fusion)
Patient-specific cranial implant 3D printed using PEEK. The durability and strength of the material and the implant’s contoured fit make it an excellent choice for reconstruction.
Cost-effective to produce with less waste than milling
Quick to manufacture
Light weight and eliminates temperature sensitivity for improved patient comfort
