Reinvent medical instruments and trial implants with this high-strength polymer
Radel PPSU (Polyphenylsulfone) from Solvay is a highly durable, lightweight material and an excellent alternative compared to metal for multiple use short-term devices and even radiopaque instruments.
Rethink instrumentation with 3D printed Radel® PPSU (Polyphenylsulfone)
Radel® PPSU is an amorphous material that, is available as medical grade for instruments such as trial implant spacer for spinal fusion surgeries. Instruments made from this material can absorb high impact without breaking and can withstand repetitive exposure to high temperatures during hot steam sterilization processes.
Choose medical-grade Radel® PPSU for reusable medical devices. It is compliant with DIN EN ISO 10993 biocompatibility testing and is suitable for applications having less than 24 hours contact with bodily fluids and tissue.
When enhanced with barium sulfate, Radel® PPSU applications are visible during medical x-ray imaging processes. The material is available in different colors.
