Implantable Devices


High-strength, radiopaque material ideal for internal medical applications.

Our life sciences graphite materials have been a mainstay in the implantable medical device market for over 40 years. The unique tungsten-blended AXF-5Q10W material combines the quality of our high-strength premium graphite with the added benefit of being radiopaque. These qualities make our materials the only choice for pyrocarbon-coated substrates used by replacement joint and mechanical heart valve manufacturers around the world.
