The Best Materials Used in Medicine
Prototyping is essential to the development and commercialization of medicals devices. Different medical prototypes have different requirements for materials. As a manufacturer of rigid equipment used in medical products or healthcare environments, it is important not only to carefull about materials you select for prototyping, but also to iterate varieties of prototypes for R&D and testing in order to achieve safe and practical performance.This article will discuss the best materials you can choose in as much detail as possible in the hope that it will help your prototyping.
Metals are often used when materials with greater strength and durability are required. Of course, in addition to their pure mechanical performance, metals used in healthcare environment must meet certain standards that most other products do not. For example, they need to be harmless to human tissues and resistant to chemicals used for cleaning. The following author will list several qualified metals and metal alloys.
- Stainless steel
The most common types of stainless steel used for medical implants and body piercings are 316 and 316L, both of which offer high corrosion resistance. Corrosion in the blood can cause infections and even death, so this feature of stainless steel is particularly important.
This grade of stainless steel is commonly used for surgical tools，such as forceps for surgical instruments, hemostatic forceps, etc. It is also used for Orthopedics, such as stabilize broken bones with screws and plates.
