Bioabsorbable Magnesium Implants

Magnesium Sheet Metal Technology for Superior Products

nanoMAG® LLC is an engineered biomaterials manufacturer developing and commercializing next generation, high-strength, light-weight, and bio-absorbable magnesium alloys.

nanoMAG offers its patent-pending bioabsorbable magnesium alloy (BioMg®) that is as strong as bone and offers a source of nutrients for bone regrowth upon absorption. By designing our alloy using elements naturally found in the body which appropriately control the rate of dissolution, the BioMg® implant supplies the temporary structural reinforcement needed during healing while avoiding complications associated with currently marketed permanent metal alloy and absorbable polymer implants.

Our primary focus is the biomedical implant market, but we also supply magnesium alloys in various forms for applications benefitting from the high strength-to-weight ratio of magnesium. These non-implant products include external fixation devices and braces, as well as specialty products for recreational sports equipment and manufacturing uses.

Put simply, at nanoMAG we work in close collaboration with our clients to create, develop and manufacture specialty magnesium alloy products.

Biocompatible Magnesium Alloys for
Biomedical Applications

nanoMAG's next generation bioabsorbable BioMg® implants, utilize alloying elements that are essential nutrients to the body.

  • Bioabsorption rate has been tuned to fix bone fractures and then disappear – eliminating the pain and costs of secondary surgeries for removing non-absorbable implants.
  • Absorption rate is controlled by microalloying
  • Specific minerals enhance bone regrowth to replace the BioMg® implant.
  • Double the strength of bioabsorbable polymer implants - opening the way for load bearing uses.
  • Applications are projected for ACL, shoulder, craniofacial, foot, hand, spine, hip and femur fixation.
Bioabsorbable magnesium screw

Bioabsorbable magnesium screws release essential nutrients critical for bone healing as they dissolve.

More Bio Uses

nanoMAG's light-weight, high-strength magnesium alloy technology is also being used to create lighter, stronger external orthopedic devices (such as knee braces), artificial limbs and surgical tools, improving both performance and comfort.

Light-Weight, High-Strength Magnesium Sheet for
Structural Applications

nanoMAG supplies precision magnesium sheet metal and short run speciality alloys to diverse industries. Using our novel Thixomolding ThermoMechanical Processing (TTMP) to generate fine grained microstructure and high strength, we can produce magnesium sheet for a variety of applications.

NanoMag Bevel

TTMP Benefits:

  • Higher strength to weight ratio than aluminum and steel
  • Improved corrosion resistance over conventional alloys
  • Higher fatigue strength
  • Improved formability without rare earths
  • Higher impact energy
  • Enhanced damping and noise reduction
  • Mini-mill production concept and Thixoblending allow nanoMAG to produce short run specialty alloys
