Our unique polymer composition of 85% poly l-lactide, 10% poly glycolide, and 5% poly d-lactide contributes to a unique combination of strength, absorption, and contourability.
A unique tripolymer blend of PGA, PLLA and PDLA, provide an ideal resorption profile.
At two and six months, Delta maintains 78% and 50% of its initial strength respectively, which can help facilitate structural fixation and reinforcement during osteosynthesis.1,2
Torque limiting screwdriver features a unique roller bearing cam, which produces smooth, accurate, and consistent performance when tightening fasteners. When you achieve the maximum torque setting, the cam mechanism automatically slips to prevent over-tightening.
Self-drilling taps combine the steps of drilling a pilot hole and tapping into one easy process.
Partial countersink plating options allow for a tighter, more stable interface between the plate and screw, minimizing any micro movement between the bone-screw-plate construct.
