click to resize photo TECASON P XRO PolyPhenylSulfone is a new line of x-ray opaque thermoplastic shapes. A radio opacifer is added to the standard line of colored polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) extruded rod for orthopedic sizing trials and other instrument devices allowing for clear visibility of the component on fluoroscopy and X-ray. This accommodates some of the new challenges created by minimally invasive and image guided surgery.

TECASON P XRO has been tested to the requirements of ISO10993 for external communication devices intended for less than 24 hour contact with tissue, bone and dentin. These tests include: Maximization / Sensitization Testing, Cytotoxicity, Intracutaneous Test, Acute Systemic Toxicity Test and the Hemolysis Test.

TECASON P XRO PolyPhenylSulfone is available ONLY in pre-molded solid round rod for machining or prototyping purposes. Available colors include:  RED ,  YELLOW ,  GREEN ,  BLUE ,  BROWN  &  RUST ,  GREY ,  BLACK  and  WHITE .
