VITAMIN E

The effect of combining UHMWPE products with Vitamin E increases the lifespan of the implant. This is due to Vitamin E being an oxygen scavenger, thereby reducing oxidation within the implant after irradiation has taken place.

DIRECT COMPRESSION MOULDING (DCM)

Using a method known as DCM, allows Orthoplastics to produce individually moulded components. Although quite a costly method of sintering the polymer, this approach achieves an excellent gloss finish to the product, ensuring the highest level of quality is maintained throughout the manufacturing process.
