. Below is an excerpt from the article.
"When I say Coors, what comes to mind? Probably not medical technology. And yet, CoorsTek, which is owned by the Coors family, has an almost 100-year legacy of supplying engineered ceramic parts and engineering and manufacturing services to the medical device industry, as well as many others. Earlier this month it launched CoorsTek Medical, broadening its medtech industry participation into the implantable medical device space.
From CoorsTek Medical CEO Jonathan Coors:
"As it relates to the implantable device space, CoorsTek Medical sees plastics as an emerging technology. We currently supply high-performance polymers used for their biocompatibility as well as their resistance to chemical, radiation, temperature, and pressure conditions during cleaning and sterilization. Polymer components are produced using high-purity materials such as PEEK at one of our state-of-the-art production facilities. Implantables often involve the integration of multiple materials, which is where materials expertise really comes into play.
