Our products and solutions

Advancing orthopedic medical devices with polymers
Performance and reliability are key when it comes to orthopedic medical devices – especially with a rapidly aging population. Our cutting edge PURASORB® polymers are highly biocompatible and biodegradable, making them the perfect fit for resorbable orthopedic devices and implants. Ideal for a wide variety of musculoskeletal issues in areas like sports medicine, trauma and spinal surgery, they also meet a diverse range of design and processing criteria -for a seamless journey from idea to industry.

Sustainable healing with tissue regeneration applications
Translating our experience into the field of tissue regeneration, we can advise on the perfect polymer from the PURASORB® range to suit specific tissue regeneration needs. As all our polymers are biodegradable, they work well in the development of tissue regeneration scaffolds, helping to support the natural healing process. It’s not just good news for the patient, either - the material can be processed by several techniques from extrusion, injection molding to the latest innovations in 3D-printing. It is also compatible with different sterilization methods, for improved flexibility.

Developing surgery-free cosmetic treatments
Demand is growing for cosmetic treatments, and surgery-free procedures especially. Our innovative polymer technology can be used to create safe, minimally invasive cosmetic injections and fillers – while all the time, ensuring efficacy. As a biodegradable excipient they help active ingredients lift sections of the face, for example, without needing surgery or a hospital stay.

Wound management – naturally
Biodegradable and biobased, our PURASORB® polymers promote natural wound management and healing via safe and effective surgical and other fiber-based products. They are extremely flexible and can be used in synthetic resorbable mono- and multi-filaments. What’s more, our leading polymers can be processed using a range of techniques, including extrusion, fiber-spinning, braiding and coating processes.
