A PEEK Into The Future

Source: Zeus

With the paradigm shift in patient treatment from surgical-based procedures to minimally invasive surgeries, extrusion advancements in invasive medical devices and procedural-based innovation are occurring on a daily basis, and Zeus is leading the way. Zeus scientists have recently engineered a process to enhance the lubricity on the inner diameter surface, outer diameter surface, or both surfaces of a complete range of polymers. Their high-performance PEEK polymer has specifically been designed with higher lubricity, decreased drag, and natural material strength.
