Implants from VESTAKEEP® PEEK provide a new level of quality in orthopedic medicine: our PEEK polymers are used especially because of their outstanding biocompatibility and biostability.
Fractures can now be treated with biodegradable implants made from RESOMER® polymers. They don't have to be removed in a follow-up surgery but dissolve in the body over defined time periods.
The consistent quality of DEGACRYL® products makes them particularly suitable for high-grade applications as in the dental and medical fields.
Implants from the 3D printer
By investing in Meditool, a Chinese firm specialized in 3D printing, Evonik has secured access to a market that will grow at an incredible pace in the coming years: custom-printed medical devices made of high-performance polymers.
VESTAMID® Care is used successfully as a catheter material because of its high bursting resistance. This is provided by the combination of flexibility and pliability, toughness and hardness.
TROGAMID® Care is a highly transparent material that is resistant to stress cracking. Because of its outstanding chemical resistance it is used especially in applications that come into contact with drugs and body fluids.
