Proud Sponsors of the Implant Polymers: UHMWPE & PEEK Conference

As the world’s leading producers of UHMWPE, Orthoplastics are pleased to announce that we will be attending the Implant Polymers: UHMWPE & PEEK Conference.

Not only will we be attending the event, but we are also proud to be sponsoring the event as Bronze Sponsors and our very own Managing Director, Mark Allen will be giving a keynote speech.

The conference is planned to be an in-person event held on the 20th and 21st of June at the Barcelona World Trade Center, located on the Mediterranean waterfront and within walking distance of the beautiful and historic La Rambla boulevard.

The meeting brings together engineers, scientists, regulators and clinicians from academia, industry and government to present leading edge research on advancements in medical grade UHMWPE, PEEK, and the rapidly growing field of polymer implant additive manufacturing technology.

In addition to UHMWPE and PEEK, the meeting will also broadly showcase point-of-care additive manufacturing of implantable polymers. The meeting will cover two full days and address the evolving interests of our polymer implant communities.

Mark Allen, Managing Director at Orthoplastics has been invited to be a keynote speaker at the conference, where he will share perspectives and insights on the latest developments and best practices in the industry.

Commitment to quality
For over 40 years, UHMWPE has been the chosen material to use within the production of medical implant applications. Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethene, otherwise known as UHMWPE, has been relied upon due to its high resistance to abrasion and wear, including its incredibly strong and durable properties.

Orthoplastics manufacture and supply the highest quality UHMWPE in the World. The quality of these plastics has been regularly documented as an exceptional development within the medical sector and has resulted in Orthoplastics being renowned as the producer of the highest quality UHMWPE products to the market.

At Orthoplastics, quality encompasses everything across all aspects of production, from customer service to design and manufacture of its premium grade medical plastics.

As part of the Viant corporation, quality is at the forefront of what we do every day because our components and finished devices save or enhance lives every day and help medical professionals achieve better outcomes for patients.

To emphasise this strict focus on delivering the highest grade of UHMWPE products, Orthoplastics adhere to rigorous quality inspection standards and processes. This ensures that every product that leaves its facility is guaranteed to meet and exceed customers' demanding standards.

As a result, Orthoplastics have been accredited to a wide range of International Quality Standards.
