The Elast-Eon material has some remarkable properties and it has found important applications in several implantable products. We've been extremely impressed with this innovative material and believe it will have a tremendous benefit to the new products we are developing. The first catheters and cannulae using Elast-Eon will be for innovative support devices to be introduced in 2007.

Elast-Eon, a patented material developed by AorTech International, is a high silicone content polyurethane copolymer with unique biostable and hemo-compatible properties. Elast-Eon is a hybrid material combining the biostability of silicone with the strength and durability of polyurethane.
