A breakthrough in polyethylene durability, Durasul Highly Crosslinked Polyethylene directly addresses the problems of wear and delamination that lead to implant failure. Durasul Polyethylene has the potential to extend an implant’s durability, providing a long-term solution for joint replacement.
Durasul Polyethylene was designed and tested to meet the three key standards for successful polyethylene performance in total joint replacement:
- Resistance to wear through a strong network of crosslinks
- Resistance to aging achieved by the elimination of residual free radicals
- Mechanical properties suitable for the knee validated by rigorous device-specific testing
