RESOMER® | Bioresorbable polymers for medical devices

RESOMER® is a biodegradable polymer that is widely used in the medical technology industry. It is known for its excellent biocompatibility, controlled degradation, and tunable properties, making it an ideal material for medical applications.

VESTAKEEP® PEEK | Polyether ether ketone molding materials for medical devices

Our VESTAKEEP® PEEK polymers are available in three different grades

  • VESTAKEEP® Implant for long term implantable medical devices
  • VESTAKEEP® Dental for permanent mucous membrane contact
  • VESTAKEEP® Care for short time contact to human blood, tissue or bone

They are biocompatible and biostable, making them ideal for use in orthopedics, Cranio-Maxillo-Facial (CMF), dental care, and medical equipment applications.

DEGACRYL® | Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) beads for medical applications

DEGACRYL® is a versatile biomaterial known for its exceptional mechanical properties, biocompatibility, and resistance to wear and tear, making it an ideal material for medical technology applications. DEGACRYL® products are particularly suitable for high-grade applications in the dental and medical fields.


VESTAMID® Care is used successfully as a catheter material because of its high bursting resistance. This is provided by the combination of flexibility and pliability, toughness and hardness.


TROGAMID® Care is a highly transparent material that is resistant to stress cracking. Because of its outstanding chemical resistance it is used especially in applications that come into contact with drugs and body fluids.


DEGAPLAST® technology offers high-strength, lightweight, and hygienic resins for the prosthetics industry. 

VECOLLAN® | Recombinant & non-animal derived collagen platform for medical applications

Our highly tunable, vegan collagen platform is produced through a sustainable fermentation-based process. VECOLLAN® can be used for applications in life sciences and is processible for a range of shapes and forms.

ENDEXO® | Low molecular weight additives for passive surface modification of medical devices

ENDEXO® surface modification technology reduces biofouling on medical devices and prevents clinical complications such as thrombosis and infection. ENDEXO® also enhances the biocompatibility of devices. 

epicite® balance | Hydro-active wound dressings made of biosynthetic cellulose

epicite® balance is a hydro-active wound dressing made of biosynthtic cellulose. It is particularly suitable for the treatment of chronic and slow-healing wounds with low to medium exudation, such as venous leg ulcers, arterial leg ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers and soft tissue lesions.

biocellic® | Biosynthetic cellulose for wound care, skin care and medical implants

Biocellic+ is a nature-identical material that is non-animal derived and produced by a fermentation-based process. This base material can be used for wound care, skin care and implants.

NANOCRYL® D | Nanoparticle modified acrylates for medical applications

Modified resins such as NANOCRYL® enable the design of more powerful, long-life components.

POLYMER VS | Addition curing silicones

Our high-performance silicone toolkit enables our customers to create individual formulations to closely match modern medical market demands for applications like dental impression or molding materials, adhesives for wound care applications or silicone formulations for cushioning gels, prostheses, podology and otology applications.

VESTODUR® | Polybutylene terephthalate compounds for direct contact with active ingredients in medical applications

Specialty VESTODUR® polybutylene terephthalate compounds are licensed for direct contact with active ingredients. These compounds are easy to process and the moldings made of them are dimensionally stable. Typical applications include the use for blood filters.

VISIOMER® | Highly purified hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) and multi-functional methacrylates for medical applications

As one of the industry leaders for methacrylate monomers, Evonik offers highly purified hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) and multi-functional methacrylates under the brand VISIOMER® for the production of diverse medical products like contact lenses, intraocular lenses, bone cements, dental fillings and dentures.

ROHACELL® | Polymethacrylimide foams as structural core for thinner and lighter medical table and couch tops

Medical table tops using ROHACELL® polymethacrylimide foam as the structural core are not only lighter, but much thinner. Their reduced mass means radiation levels required for radioscopy can be kept at a minimum, thereby exposing the patient to much less radiation and lowering health risks. Thinner table tops also reduce scatter radiation and provide X-Ray images of much higher quality.

VESTENAMER® | Reactive plastizisers and compatibilizers for elastomers in medical equipment such as rubber seals and stoppers

VESTENAMER® is a high performance component for rubber formulations. It is a reactive plastiziser and compatibilizer for elastomers of different polarity. It improves the melt flow reducing cycle times in injection or compression molding and also improves the mechanical properties of the final part, including excellent surface quality of complex parts.

Evonik's commitment to innovation in biomaterials and solutions for the medical technology industry enables the development of safe and effective medical devices that improve patient outcomes. We are dedicated to continuing to provide cutting-edge solutions for this important field.
