Perfect
for the human body.

 

Unalloyed commercially pure (CP) Titanium

Available in four distinct grades (1, 2, 3, and 4), Titanium is classified by its corrosion resistance, ductility, and strength. CP Ti Gr. 1 has the highest corrosion resistance, formability, and lowest strength, whereas, CP Ti Gr. 4 offers the highest strength with moderate formability. The most desirable feature of our CP Ti is its ability to osseointegrate within the human body. Titanium also offers a higher strength-to-weight ratio and increased corrosion resistance compared to the stainless steel alloys, thus making it an attractive choice for medical applications.
