KNOW THE SPECIFICITIES AND REQUIREMENTS OF MARKET SEGMENTS TO BETTER RESPOND TO THEM
ORTHOPAEDICS, TRAUMA AND VASCULAR & ASSOCIATED ANCILLARIES
Medical prostheses implanted in the human body require biocompatible metallic materials with absolute reliability in terms of their properties and traceability.
Stainless France has been a recognised supplier to the orthopaedic industry for over 40 years, meeting the needs of industrials through a comprehensive range of biocompatible metallic materials with properties adapted to sector requirements (grain size, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, tensile strength, polishability, …)
Examples of finished products
– Joint prostheses (hip, knee, shoulder…)
– Spinal devices
– Bone screws
– Spine implants
A dental implant is an artificial titanium root placed in the alveolar bone to replace one or more missing teeth.
Titanium is known to be the reference metal for dental implants.
Indeed, its bio-compatibility, its strength and its light weight allow it to perfectly integrate the jaw.
Examples of finished products
– Dental implants
– Instrumentation (dental drill, bit, …)
INSTRUMENTATION & SURGICAL TOOLS
The manufacture and composition of surgical instruments and tools are subject to very strict standards. Stainless France’s expertise is based on its knowledge of the manufacturing process and the corrosion-related constraints of surgical instruments and its experience in the stocking and distribution of stainless steels.
For many years, instruments have been made using stainless steel because of its mechanical qualities (hardness, elasticity, toughness and ductility) and corrosion resistance.
There are two main categories of stainless steel:
Martensitic steels : for high mechanical strength
Austenitic steels : for corrosion resistance
– Drill bit
MEDICAL CONNECTION TECHNOLOGY
In the medical field, connection technology is everywhere and requires materials capable of meeting electrical conductivity, fatigue resistance, laser weldability and shaping needs. Stainless France distributes a range of grades that meet the demanding requirements of medical connection technology.
– Pacemaker connector
– Medical device connectors
A commitment to quality
STAINLESS takes special care over quality assurance and product traceability for products used for both implants and surgical instruments.
In addition to a delivery check carried out on each batch, a material certificate issued by our partner factories is systematically attached to the delivery.
