industry-leading characteristics of these products.
Orangeburg, SC February 6, 2009 - Zeus, Inc. announces new product name changes that signify its commitment to innovation and quality. The selected products are unaltered in composition and processing. They remain the same quality products that Zeus customers have come to expect and trust.
New brand names are as follows:
o New trademarked product Aeos(TM), formerly known as ePTFE, is a micro-porous material that is medically implantable and has a low coefficient of friction. The new brand name Aeos was coined after the word "eon" to suggest the material's durability over an extended period of time.
o New trademarked product Impactiv(TM), formerly known as Lubricious PEEK(TM), is a new version of PEEK tubing and can be used anywhere PEEK is used with a need for lower coefficient of friction. The material's new name suggests the product's excellent impact resistance.
o New trademarked product Absorv(TM), formerly known as Zeus Biomaterial, receives its new brand name from its distinctive absorptive quality. These absorbable polymers have generated an extreme amount of interest due to their unique ability to perform vital functions in the body and safely absorb after they have carried out their function.
o New trademarked product DuaTem(TM), formerly known as Hytem, is a flexible alternative to Ultem and is capable of operating at both high and low service temperatures. The new brand name reflects the dual properties of the product.
