TECAFORM® MT (medical grade)

TECAFORM® MT is Ensinger's specially formulated medical grade acetal. The material is resistant to multiple cleaning and disinfection agents, and to a number of solvents. It can be steam sterilized by medical industry's usual methods, and will maintain good strength, stiffness, and dimensional stability.

  • Tested for biocompatibility in compliance with USP Class VI
  • Tested for Cytotoxicity and compliance according to ISO 10993
  • Easily machinable

While used for a great number of medical applications, TECAFORM® MT is particularly suited for use as sizing trials in knee, hip, and shoulder replacement procedures.
