You don’t have to take our word for it when we describe the excellence of Dyneema Purity® fibers. See what others are saying:
From an orthopedic surgeon:
“After years of research, fiber constructions made of medical grade UHMWPE fiber are quickly emerging as an alternative to steel. Its properties allow for flexible design of constructions, and its smaller dimensions enable UHMWPE fibers to be used in smaller implants which are ideal for new, minimally invasive surgical techniques that can lead to shorter hospitalization and faster recovery times.
– Dr. Lodewijk van Rhijn, Orthopaedic Surgeon at University Hospital Maastricht, The Netherlands
From customers and trusted specialist:
“Strong sutures are an important trend within the orthopedic field. Biomet is pleased to be able to offer this next generation suture – MaxBraidTM – containing Dyneema Purity® fiber to the orthopedic community. Our Lactoscrew is the strongest anchor, and it is great to attach the strongest suture to it.”
– Kevin Stone, VP of Operations, Biomet Sports Medicine Inc.

From a patient:
“As a successful Olympic Weightlifter from 1980 to 2000, I earned countless titles and awards while my shoulders paid the price. My orthopedic surgeon used Dyneema Purity® fiber in the surgeries to reattach both rotator cuffs, and I could not be more pleased with the results. Shortly after my first surgery I was able to return to my full exercise regimen, and while I am currently recovering from my second surgery, I expect the same successful outcome. With the innovative repair of my shoulder tendons, I can appreciate my past successes while still enjoying an active future.”
– John Coniff, former Olympic Weightlifter and Global Business Segment Manager, Sulzer Metco
