Ketron® LSG PEEK was developed for applications in contact with bodily fluids for no more than 24 hours. These stock shapes are produced from specific Victrex PEEK resin batches that comply with the regulations applicable in the Member States of the European Union (Directive 2002/72/EC, as amended) and in the United States of America (FDA) for plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with foodstuffs.
KETRON LSG PEEK stock shapes have also been successfully type tested for their compliance with both United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and ISO 10993-1 guideline requirements for Biocompatibility Testing of Materials. They come with full traceability from resin to stock shape. The materials also offer excellent resistance to sterilization by means of steam, dry heat, ethylene oxide, plasma and gamma irradiation.
