Until recently, predominantly non-reinforced plastics in addition to relatively small volumes of thermoset-plastic fibre composites were used in the orthopaedics industry. Since the market launch of TEPEX® dynalite 108, 208 and 408, the technical and commercial potential that stems from the short cycle times in production and from the scope for manufacturing very light, rigid components has been recognised.
Thanks to the relatively low forming temperature, the materials can be used by most orthopaedic workshops and processed with existing machinery.
