Medical Use

For the past two and a half years, the words “sanitized” and “medical-grade” has been on the minds of many.

Medical Manufacturers prefer stainless steel for various products, including:

  • Surgical materials such as knives, clamps, spatulas blades, needle holders, forceps, etc. 
  • Dental tools, steam sterilizers, MRI scanners, operation tables, stretchers
  • Stainless steel is used for pacemakers, artificial valves, and small machinery parts for EKG, ECG, etc.
