Chemistry for Processing Stainless Steel

Stainless Steel is a biocompatible metal alloy often used in orthopedic implants, artificial heart valves, medical screws and plates, catheters and other medical devices.

Stainless Steel requires specific chemical solutions to ensure effectiveness and decrease the risk of rejection. RBP Chemical Technology is the leader in development, manufacturing and the distribution of specialty chemical processes for the cleaning and passivation of Stainless Steel and other metal alloys used for implanted medical devices.
