Choice of raw material
The materials used to manufacture our instruments comply with the FDA regulations and the French Standardization Norms :
- Stainless steel NFS 90450 - NFS 90451
- Peek and Acetal Copolymer (FDA norms)
- Resin complies with the industry norms 21 CFR 177 24 70 without phtalates
- Titanium used complies with the standards N° AMS 4928 – ASTM B348 - ISO 5832-3
Materials, whether steel or titanium, must be carefully chosen because the PH as well as the ionic conditions in the human body constitute a harmful environment for metals provoking the acceleration of the corrosion process.
Therefore, surgical steel must contain a percentage of Nickel to resist corrosion. Furthermore, the corrosion resistance of surgical steel depends greatly on its surface finish.
Indeed, a rough surface state, which contains roughness, retains the bacteria while a smooth and well polished surface ensures the fact that they do not cling and facilitates the decontamination.
