Cranio-Maxillo-Facial (CMF)

Biomaterials for temporary and permanent implants for Cranio-Maxillo-Facial (CMF) applications

At Evonik, we are a global innovation hub for biomaterials working with our customers to take their ideas from concept to market for more than 30 years. We offer global medical technology companies the industry's most comprehensive portfolio of biocompatible materials for customized temporary and permanent implant applications in Cranio-Maxillo-Facial (CMF) devices. CMF trauma refers to injuries to the soft and hard tissues of the face, neck, and scalp. These injuries can be caused by various factors, including accidents, sports injuries and falls, and treatment is highly specialized.

Cranio-Maxillo-Facial surgery requires high-performance biomaterials that can support the reconstruction and regeneration of bone and soft tissue. One of the main challenges in CMF implant surgery is to achieve a stable fixation of the implant to the surrounding bone, while minimizing the risk of infection and inflammation.


RESOMER® can be used to manufacture plates, screws, pins, and meshes for CMF implant surgery. These biopolymers have excellent biocompatibility, mechanical strength, and osteoconductivity, meaning they promote bone growth around the implant.


Vestakeep can be used to manufacture permanent implants for CMF surgery, such as cranial plates, orbital floor implants, and mandibular implants. Vestakeep has elasticity similar to that of human bone, which reduces stress shielding and improves bone integration.

Ear impression putties need to have a smooth consistency, good flowability, and precise dimensional stability. Evonik offers silicone-based ear impression putties that meet these requirements. Our ear impression putties are easy to mix and apply, have a short setting time, and provide accurate impressions of the ear canal.


Evonik offers ear impression putties for individual hearing aids. With our extensive technical experience, technical service and guide formulations we provide our customers with important insights for applications like impression or molding materials, or silicone formulations for otology applications.

With our expertise in biomaterials and commitment to innovation, Evonik is transforming the CMF market by improving medical device safety, biocompatibility, and performance. The company's dedication to innovation and technical expertise guarantees that it will continue to offer state-of-the-art solutions for CMF applications.

As a leading designer for polymer-based biomaterials with a broad portfolio of products, technologies and services, Evonik has served to many of the world’s largest and most innovative medical device companies for more than 30 years. Rooted in science, driven by continuous innovation, and relentlessly committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, we empower our customers to accelerate time-to-market for new medical technologies that create life beyond limits.
