Our GUR® UHMW-PE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) has been a material-of-choice in orthopedic implants for more than 40 years. It is biocompatible and allows for flexible part design. GUR 1020 and 1050 are two of the most frequently used materials for articulating bearing surfaces in orthopedic surgical implant technology.

Review this brochure for further information about the performance characteristics of these premium grades. You’ll also discover how vitamin E is used as a stabilizer for the orthopedic implants made from UHMW-PE.
