Solviva® Biomaterials for Implantable Devices 

 
Expand All Collapse All
OverviewSafetyGuidelines for UseNews & Events

Solviva® is a family of biomaterials offered for use in implantable medical devices. Only products designated as part of the Solviva® family of biomaterials may be considered as candidates for medical applications implanted in the human body and devices that are in contact with bodily fluids or tissues for greater than 24 hours.

Solviva Biomaterials meet or exceed the highest industry standards in terms of quality and biological safety. Products are available for prolonged exposure (greater than 24 hours to less than 30 days) and permanent exposure (greater than 30 days) to bodily fluids and tissue in the human body.

Solviva products can be sterilized using all conventional sterilization methods, including gamma radiation, ethylene oxide and steam.

More to Offer than PEEK

The Solviva family of biomaterials includes four distinct polymer chemistries, providing more options for meeting the needs of implantable devices used in orthopedics, cardiovascular, spine and more.

Zeniva® polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is one of the most biostable plastics available with high strength and stiffness plus excellent toughness and fatigue resistance. Zeniva PEEK meets the requirements of ASTM F2026-07 as a polyetheretherketone (PEEK) polymer for surgical implant applications.

Proniva® self-reinforced polyphenylene (SRP) is among the world's stiffest and strongest unreinforced thermoplastic that offers exceptional biocompatibility and hardness.

Veriva® polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) provides unsurpassed toughness combined with transparency and excellent biocompatibility.

Eviva® polysulfone (PSU) offers practical toughness in a strong, transparent polymer. It is also available in opaque white.

Product Availability

Solviva Biomaterials are available directly from Solvay in both injection molding resins and stock shapes. Please contact us for individual data sheets.
