Orthopedic Implants

Celanese’s GUR® UHMW-PE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) is biocompatible and allows for flexibility of part design and has been a material-of-choice in orthopedic implants for more than 40 years.

GUR® UHMW-PE 1020 and 1050 are used for the manufacture of surgical implants, including articulating bearing surfaces for hips, knees and other joints.

Celanese has taken into account the special requirements of medical technology for orthopedic implants by ensuring exceptionally high quality, and conforming to regulatory agency criteria based on international standards ASTM F648 and ISO 5834-1/-2 for raw materials and semi-finished products.
