HTR-PEKK Patient-Matched Cranial Implant

HTR-PEKK introduces state-of-the-art technology and material for manufacturing implants. Through laser sintering or 3D printed manufacturing, HTR-PEKK offers complex solutions to match patient needs.

HTR-PEKK Material

PEKK (poly-ether-ketone-ketone) is a biocompatible material from the same polymer family as PEEK. This family of materials has been utilized in orthopedics and trauma since the 1980s.1
Surgeons can now select a material for medical device implants offering properties such as radiolucency2 and high mechanical strength.3

HTR-PEKK Offers:

  • A high strength material with compressive strength of 24.9 Kpsi4
  • Proven biocompatibility5
  • Four fit options for patient specific aesthetics
  • Simplified CT data transfer through FTP and PACS


HTR-PEKK is manufactured in partnership with Oxford Performance Materials (OPM) using OsteoFab™ Technology
