The materials used in each component are specifically designed for medical applications and conform to the ISO standards and standards of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).
Titanium is well-known as a metallic element resistant to corrosion (like platinum) and for its high resistanceto-weight ratio.
In the biomedical field, titanium is used either in pure form in four commercial grades (Ti-c.p. g1, Ti-c.p. gr2, Ti-c.p. gr3, and Ti-c.p. gr4), or alloyed with aluminum and vanadium (Ti6Al4V ELI).
All Plan1Health’s implantable products are made exclusively from top-grade Ti-c.p.4 (surgical implants and healing screws) or from the titanium alloy Ti6Al4V (small-diameter implants) which is the most widely used material for long-term orthopedic applications inside the human body.
Our retaining screws and prosthetic abutments are also made from the Ti6Al4V alloy. Before use, bars and raw materials undergo rigorous metallographic testing to ensure the highest quality and safety of the finished products.
Austenitic Stainless Steel
Containing Ni and Cr in proportions that preserve its austenitic structure even at ambient temperatures, it can be classified by the percentage of Ni and Cr content. In the ASTM system, these materials make up the 300 series.
- ease of cleaning and optimum hygienic coefficient;
- doesn’t become magnetized even after heating.
