This presentation by Andrew Elleray discusses innovations in medical grade PEEK. By varying the filler from barium sulphate to oriented carbon fibers, a broad range of PEEK biomaterials with tailored radiopacity and mechancial behavior has been created. Fiber applications of PEEK, as well as porous PEEK are discussed.
