Cal-Cemex® is an innovative hybrid bone substitute born from Tecres' many years of experience in the medical field. Cal-Cemex® meets the needs of the surgeon looking for an osteoconductive biomaterial with high mechanical strength.
Cal-Cemex® comes in the form of a powder and a liquid that, once mixed, becomes an easily moldable and applicable paste, both during open and percutaneous operations. The rheological characteristics of the material allow the surgeon an adequately long working time to complete the filling of the bone defect in conditions of total safety.
Cal-Cemex® is an innovative biomaterial unique in its kind. Its uniqueness is given by its hybrid formulation that combines two components: Beta-Tricalcium Phosphate and Polymethylmethacrylate. The hybrid formula preserves the characteristics of Beta-Tricalcium Phosphate and PMMA, enhancing their advantages. Cal-Cemex® in fact creates an immediate support to the bone structure, while promoting its regrowth.
The presence of βTCP gives Cal-Cemex®, once polymerized, an open porosity that allows the passage of fluids by capillarity, preserving the biological activity of the surrounding tissue and promoting the regrowth of bone tissue.
The βTCP component is present in both powder and granule forms:
Cal-Cemex® reaches its maximum mechanical strength as soon as the polymerization is complete. Its strength remains unchanged over time thanks to the performance of PMMA.
