Precision-molded thermoplastic components made from carbon-fiber-based composite materials for orthopedic applications

Greene Tweed provides precision-molded thermoplastic composite components made from our high-performance Orthtek® material. Used for demanding medical and biotechnology applications, Orthtek®‘s high strength, low weight, corrosion resistance, and dimensional stability for steam or autoclave sterilization make it an ideal high-performance metal replacement.

Orthtek® composites have a PEEK polymer matrix with high carbon fiber reinforcement content (50 percent fiber volume), and are radiolucent for X-ray transparency.

These materials provide mechanical properties competitive with metals and are much lighter, resulting in superior strength to weight.
