Arctic Biomaterials Oy is a company producing high-quality materials for bioresorbable implants (Medical business unit) and as sustainable alternatives for conventional fossil oil-based plastics (Technical business unit).
One specialty utilized in both medical and technical sectors is our proprietary bioresorbable glass fiber reinforcement technology.
Our medical business unit breaks boundaries with medical grade bioresorbable composite raw materials even for load-bearing applications, as well as offers new manufacturing technologies and R&D services.
Our technical business unit produces high-performance bio-based and biodegradable composites for demanding consumer and industrial applications.
Join us on our journey to make sure we give future generations the possibility to enjoy an innovative, green and healthy planet.
Arctic Biomaterials is a winning player in a field that requires a strong knowledge of materials, processing and product design for each application. We have assembled a strong, talented and experienced team, on which each key person posseses more than 15 years’ experience in the development or manufacturing of biomaterials and medical devices.
We use our world-class science and engineering expertise to create bioresorbable load-bearing replacement products for metals and help our customers to take advantage of demanding market opportunities.
It is our goal and driving ambition to be the trusted partner of choice, delivering high-value bioresorbable composite materials and solutions to our clients. We use our world-class science and engineering to seize market opportunities and solve some of the world’s biggest challenges in resorbable polymer chemistry and processing.
Since bioplastics entered technical application and medical device markets, they have lacked the mechanical and/or thermal properties to be fully utilized in either fields. Arctic Biomaterials has now came up with innovative solutions through its ABMcomposite technology, thus closing the property gap between bioplastics and non-biodegradable plastics.
In the Medical field, this will be the first time that bioresorbable materials will be used in load-bearing applications and, in addition to this, manufacturers will be given the design freedom to make competitive implants for titanium or metal alloys. ABMcomposite technology will open also totally new indications and markets for bioresorbable materials.
In the Technical field, ABMcomposite technology will for the first time introduce materials which can truly compete with traditional composites made using conventional processing techniques. This is due to the materials having comparable processability, high heat resistance and excellent mechanical properties.
Bio-based material solutions for sustainability leaders
As opposed to fossil-based plastics, our bio-based products bind atmospheric carbon. With our materials, the environmental footprint of your products may be reduced as much as 60-80%. Furthermore, we have the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) know-how that is needed for application-specific calculations.
