Until now, it has been virtually impossible to manufacture implants from compound plastics with bioactive particles by injection molding. For orthopedic device manufacturers, VESTAKEEP® Fusion offers the added value of fully preserving the osteoconductive function during injection molding. The unique combination of material and processing properties allows osteoconductive plastic implants to be manufactured in one production step and eliminates the need to coat implants with titanium or other expensive processes. This white paper shares the science behind Evonik's VESTAKEEP material and process and highlights the benefits of injection molded vs. machined implants.
