RxFiber, the first manufacturer dedicated solely to engineering medical-grade fibers for the medical device industry, has developed and commercially released its latest award winning product, RxFibron HT, a high-tenacity PET (Polyester) biomaterial for medical device applications. As an innovative alternative to UHMWPE and regular Polyester, RxFibron HT features several advantages over current market fibers including durability, high strength, thermal melt properties for ease of manufacturing, and custom size variations suitable for creating lower-profile devices. The revolutionary RxFibron HT is the first commercially available high-tenacity, medical-grade PET biomaterial that can be used to create next-generation implantable devices, such as sutures, composites, and more for applications such as endovascular, vascular, and orthopedics.
"Engineers will have the ability to develop lower-profile devices while maintaining the strength and integrity of the device," says
