The next-generation bioabsorbable Evolvecomp composites are reinforced with bioactive natural mineral fibers. With these composites, our customers can realize their visions for strong bioabsorbable orthopedic implants.
The natural mineral fibers are osteoconductive (see white papers), which allows direct bone-implant interaction. All the medical grade Evolvecomp materials show excellent biocompatibility according to ISO 10993-1 standard.
The absorption time can be tailored by composition selection and processing. The Evolvecomp grades are suitable for demanding injection moulding, extrusion and compression moulding applications.
Other compositions are also available on request.
