Forceps Gerald Straight Titanium 1 x 2 Teeth
Titanium surgical instruments offer several advantages over stainless steel instruments:
- Titanium is lightweight with a high tensile strength.
- Titanium is durable, even after repeated autoclaving.
- Titanium is corrosion resistant, non-ferrous, non-magnetic and bio-compatible.
- Anodized titanium surgical instruments are non-reflective.
Because titanium is a non-ferrous metal, it will not rust. It resists corrosion even in the presence of oxidizing acids (like nitric acid), chlorides, saltwater, and industrial and organic chemicals. If you are doing any work with MRIs, you will want to consider titanium surgical instruments, because they are 100% non-magnetic.
