Biocompatible and wear-resistant advanced ceramics are successfully used in orthopedics to solve mobility problems caused by trauma, diseases or natural aging.

Petroceramics has developed new proprietary, patented silicon nitride-based materials, and related processing method,[1] that can be applied for e.g. spine prosthesis (cages and corpectomy devices) and total joint arthroplasty.

Our silicon nitride features excellent properties such as high flexural strength, high fracture toughness, Weibull modulus, high wear resistance, biocompatible and stable against hydrothermal degradation.
