calc-i-pur™ β Tricalcium Phosphate

calc-i-pur™ β Tricalcium Phosphate is an additive commonly used in manufacturing of osteoconductive implants, including bioresorbable bone screws. calc-i-pur™ meets the general requirements of ASTM F1088, “Standard Specification for Beta-Tricalcium Phosphate for Surgical Implantation.

Manufactured by Degradable Solutions (a Sunstar Group company), calc-i-pur™ β tricalcium phosphate is a biocompatible mineral powder comprised of calcium salt and phosphoric acid. calc-i-pur™ is commonly used in the manufacturing of orthopedic implants to stimulate bone growth. Osteoconductive composites containing TCP minerals can be custom manufactured using bioresorbable polymers, including PLA, PGA as well as hydroxyapatite additives (HA) for biphasic formulations. calc-i-pur™ is available in GMP and non-GMP batches.
