About E-Poly™ Antioxidant Infused Technology

Uniting the research power of Massachusetts General Hospital with Biomet's polyethylene expertise, E-Poly™ Antioxidant Infused Technology is unlike any other bearing surface currently available for joint replacement.

With the addition of vitamin E, a natural antioxidant, E-Poly™ bearings avoid the limitations of re-melted and annealed polyethylenes, providing high mechanical strength and preventing oxidative degradation of the polyethylene.(1)
