Why choose titanium ?
Titanium is widely recognised as the material of choice in the medical industry for its excellent biocompatibility with the human body.
Other materials stocked by ACNIS International present similar characteristics and are commonly being used for medical applications : 316LVM and High-Nitrogen Alloyed Stainless Steels, Cobalt Chrome Molybdenum, PEEK and Polyethylen (UHMWPE) most notably.
ACNIS International offers from stock a wide range of metal and plastic products for joint reconstruction (implants used for the replacement of knee, hip, wrist, shoulder, ankle or elbow), spinal implants, ostheosynthesis (bone screws, trauma plates) and dental applications (implants and CAD/CAM dentistry, from bars and discs).
- Excellent mechanical properties
- Strength to weight ratio
- Resistance to corrosion
