Since its inception, SINTX Technologies has been focused on medical-grade silicon nitride. SINTX’s FleX SN-MC2, FleX SN-CSC, FleX SN-PEEK, and FleX SN-AP products are biocompatible, bioactive, antipathogenic, and have shown superb bone affinity4.
FleX-SN products can be polished to a smooth and wear-resistant surface for articulating applications, such as bearings for hip and knee replacements8,9,10. Because of their inherent resistance to bacterial adhesion11, they are also suitable as dental implant material.
Bacterial infection of any biomaterial implants is always a concern. FleX-SN is inherently resistant to bacterial colonization and biofilm formation, making it antibacterial 11,12.
