Founded in 1968, PolyFab provides custom engineered plastic fabrications.
We work with many materials and specialize in clear plastics.
Some of the applications we have made include:

The highly wear-resistant polymer that I've described or referred to is a very special grade of UHMW, ultrahigh molecular weight, polyethylene. I'll call it polyethylene throughout this testimony; however, believe me, it's not a simple polyethylene.
To the best of my knowledge, there are only two manufacturers of a material like this in the world. Over the past couple of decades, we have evaluated material produced by both manufacturers, and with our very unique process have determined that the material provided by Montell serves us best in the ultimate fabrication of total joints.
Hoechst participates in only a small fraction of the overall handling and quality control of the UHMWPE which goes into an implantable device. Hoechst does not design, test, manufacture nor sell any implant parts made from our polymer. Hoechst only sells polymer products which meet industry standard sales specifications. The polymer conversion into stock rods, sheets or semi-finished parts, the machining steps, handling and quality control in these processing steps require technologies which Hoechst has no expertise nor participation.
