Solvay has launched ZenivaZA-600 CF30 polyetheretherketone (PEEK), a 30% carbon fiber-reinforced, radiolucent polymer offered for injection molding of implantable device applications.

Compared to implantable metals, it offers modulus very similar to cortical bone, which help implants minimize reduction in bone density by maintaining normal stress on surrounding bone tissue.

Zeniva ZA-600 CF30 PEEK offers strength twice that of unmodified PEEK for use in structural, load-bearing, implantable devices used in spine, hip and knee replacements.

According to Solvay, such high strength allows designers to reduce the size and scale of their implanted devices to make them less intrusive. The material also has exceptional creep resistance and the ability to withstand prolonged fatigue strain.

This new specialty polymer also shares unmodified PEEK's inherent radiolucency, giving it an advantage over metallic solutions that prohibit visualization of implants and fusions using x-ray, CT scan, MRI and other medical imaging methods.

"Zeniva ZA-600 PEEK CF30 offers the orthopedic industry an innovative new structural material with the potential to dramatically reduce the manufacturing costs of implantable devices used for sports medicine, trauma and joint reconstruction," said Jeff Hrivnak, Business Manager for Healthcare at Solvay's Specialty Polymers global business unit.

"Optimized for injection molding, this material opens the door to cost-effective, large-scale production of implants."

Zeniva ZA-600 CF30 PEEK is manufactured in a dedicated ISO 13485- and cGMP-compliant facility in the US and is tested in ISO 17025 labs. It is part of Solvay's Solviva family of biomaterials, which offer a broad and growing range of options for implantable devices used in orthopedics, cardiovascular, spine and other applications.
