Polyether Ether-Ketone (PEEK) is an engineering grade thermoplastic polymer with characteristics that are uniquely suited to many medical tubing applications. PEEK is a high purity, semi-crystalline, organic polymer with excellent resistance to thermal degradation at high temperatures. PEEK tubing exhibits high column strength, as well as high tensile strength and high flexural modulus, making it perfect for catheters and other tubing applications requiring good torque response and pushability.
Extruded PEEK tubing is used in medical applications where exceptionally high rigidity is needed. Due to PEEK’s excellent biocompatibility, it is a suitable choice for long-term implants. With a modulus similar to bone, PEEK is commonly used in orthopedic implant applications. PEEK tubing can also be found in medical applications requiring high vacuum or pressure holding capability. The material can serve as an effective alternative to steel, aluminum, glass, and other polymers, including use as a composite structure in reinforced catheter shafts.
30% Carbon Filled PEEK has been reinforced with carbon fibers that improve PEEK’s compressive strength and stiffness, while also reducing its expansion rate. This grade of PEEK offers the best wear resistance and load bearing capabilities, while also offering 3.5 times higher thermal conductivity than Unfilled PEEK. This improves bearing life and capability. 30% Carbon Filled PEEK ( PEEK5600CF30) is available in sheet and rod in a black color. PEEK5600CF30 is also can be made the injection Trauma PEEK Targeting Device.
As the fifth category of orthopedics in China, sports medicine has been widely used in orthopedics with its two core characteristics of minimally invasive surgery and reduction of soft tissue damage.The market share of the global orthopaedic industry is as high as over 1%, with a rapid growth rate of 30% every year, which is the fastest growing segment of the orthopaedic industry in the future.At present, more than 90% of the market share of sports medicine is occupied by foreign medical giants. At present, medical transport in China is still in the early stage of development.However, with the development of domestic orthopedic industry, the replacement of import is an inevitable trend.In the next 3-5 years, domestic sports medicine will focus on the development of registration, involving mold opening and injection molding foundry, and the demand for implant-grade particles will also increase rapidly. There are huge demands and opportunities.
Junhua Medical is always at the forefront of the market. Since the middle of 2020 year, Junhua PEEK has started to work with dozens of trauma device manufactures to develop the implantable intramedullary nail. The implantable PEEK material is provided by the medical partner, and Junhua company provide the OEM service.
AKSO PEEK is the registrated brand for implantable PEEK made by Junhua PEEK.The authority license is under the process and it will be gained in the end of 2022 as plan. AKSO is the representative of the goddess of health in ancient Greek mythology. AKSO is the medical grade long-termed implantable PEEK by Junhua medical.Four kinds of implantable PEEK will be available,
