Due to the typical characteristics of chemical, mechanical and biocompatibility resistance, the materials studied by MAKO SHARK find a natural field of application in the medical sector. The composite materials developed by MAKO SHARK for the medical sector have high values of rigidity and dimensional stability even at high temperatures and this makes them ideal for the production of components that must undergo numerous sterilization cycles during their life cycle, thus contributing to extend the life span of the products.
The materials, physiologically inert, biocompatible and corrosion resistant, are suitable for reconstruction and protection applications. In the orthopaedic sector, the lightness, strength and elasticity typical of carbon fibre composites are optimal characteristics for prostheses. The excellent characteristics of radiolucency also allow applications in the field of control and analysis.
