Stainless steel for medical and surgical applications

In contrast to ordinary steel and other materials, stainless steel is playing an increasingly important role in the field of medical technology also.

Due to its many positive properties, this versatile metal is being used more and more frequently in the medical field and is used by many manufacturers to meet the highest demands.

We would like to explain this in a little more detail as follows:

Why is stainless steel used in medical technology?

Stainless steel is used in modern medical technology in many areas in which the high quality of the material is guaranteed even under great strain.

Its high corrosion resistance, strength and general chemical resistance, the very good formability, polishability and manufacturing precision, as well as the excellent hygienic properties make stainless steel one of the most processed materials in the field of medical technology.

Stainless steel is colourfast and a thorough and complete cleaning is possible, the material can be reused, has particularly good antibacterial properties, is made from up to 80 % recycled material and is 100 % recyclable.

Which materials are suitable for the medical and pharmaceuticals industries?

mirrorINOX predominately processes stainless steel in the grades AISI 304 and AISI 316/AISI 316L, but other grades such as AISI 301, 1.4435, 1.4462 and many more can be processed and surface treated as well.

At mirrorINOX, for example, stainless steel sheets for medical and pharmaceutical container construction are Ra-grit-polished, Ra-gloss-polished and mirror-polished (down to below Ra 0.1 is possible) in large quantities.

Even for similar applications, where the customer previously used sheets with 2R mill finish surfaces and can only obtain these now with great difficulty or not at all, mirrorINOX has extremely interesting alternatives to offer here - and this in dimensions of up to 16,000 x 4,000 x 30.0 mm – worldwide unique!!!

These large dimensions are extremely beneficial for the tank, vessel, silo and container construction and represent great technical and economic advantages.
