Innovation driven by clinical need and a desire to improve patient outcomes

Why you should consider medical grade PEEK

Invibio, a Victrex plc company, is a proven partner to medical device manufacturers and a leading provider of biomaterial solutions. Every day Invibio’s medical PEEK polymers are used in diverse medical applications from drug delivery to orthopaedic joint replacement.

Pioneering solutions where PEEK delivers a strong advantage driven by global megatrends

An ageing, active population demanding more from healthcare

A wider range of treatment options aew needed to address shifting patient demographics and attitudes

Growing concerns over complications associated with metal implants 

Clinicians are increasingly seeking proven alternative materials to overcome metal-related issues, such as polymers for medical devices.

Increasing pricing pressures and competition as resources reduce

Medical manufacturers are seeking streamlined design, manufacturing, regulatory and supply-chain solutions that achieve more with less, and medical PEEK, such as Invibio PEEK-OPTIMA™, is one of those solutions.

Medical polymers with the potential to improve clinical outcomes

PEEK-CLASSIX™ polymer from Invibio is a medical grade, high performance, biocompatible polymer suitable for applications requiring blood or tissue contact of less than 30 days.

One of the most chemically resistant thermoplastics available; it exhibits a superior combination of strength, stiffness and toughness, making it ideally suited for medical device applications such as drug delivery, dental abutments, catheters, blood management and surgical instruments.
