Titanium Materials’ Performance Advantages And Main Applications In Medical


Titanium medical equipment is the third generation surgical equipment after carbon steel and stainless steel. In order to improve the anti-rust performance of stainless steel instruments, surface treatments such as chrome plating and electropolishing are often required. But chromium is toxic, and the peeled chromium layer will have certain effects on the human body.


The benefits of titanium as a medical device are:

1. The instrument is light and handy, which can reduce the damage to blood vessels, muscles and organs during the operation, and reduce the fatigue of the doctor. Titanium instruments are more suitable for fine microsurgery operations;

2. Good corrosion resistance and non-toxicity, the equipment does not rust, the wound is not easy to be infected, and the wound heals quickly;

3. Titanium has moderate elasticity, suitable for making medical pliers, tweezers, microscalpels and other instruments;

4. When operating under a shadowless lamp, the reflective performance of titanium is weaker, which is more suitable than stainless steel.

Titanium materials in medcial  mainly include: scalpel, surgical forceps, surgical forceps, chest expander, suture needle, suture thread, etc. Titanium wire is used as surgical suture. Compared with other materials, it has the advantages of small tissue response and good torsion resistance. After stitching, the surgical wound is not easy to inflame, and the bone suture site is not easy to shift. The suture thread generally uses pure titanium wire (TA2 or TA1 titanium wire) with a diameter of 0.5 to 0.8mm. In addition, the soft elasticity produced by the TiNi superelastic wire can promote the rapid healing of wounds.
