DSM Expands Dyneema Purity Fiber Portfolio with the Release of Dyneema Purity Radiopaque Fiber

DSM launched Dyneema Purity® Radiopaque fiber, reportedly the only radiopaque ultra-high-molecular-weight-polyethylene (UHMWPE) medical fiber in the world. Dyneema Purity Radiopaque fiber is designed to support the development of medical devices for use in orthopedic trauma. The fiber contains a radiopacifier, which makes it the only UHMWPE fiber currently available that is visible in x-ray images. This feature helps surgeons with medical device and implant visualization both during and after surgical interventions.

The fiber will initially be used as a replacement for metal surgical cables that are used in procedures to treat bone fractures. (Source: DSM)
