Based on the worldwide proven standards of excellence for strength, superelasticity, formability, corrosion resistance and biocompatibility as our standard Nitinol material for implants, Nitinol HCF-SE is a consequent evolution. It allows to design next generation improved generation components, which will become smaller and more sophisticated in size and fields of application. A more than 10 times higher fatigue life has been reported. This makes the material the first choice for high-cycle fatigue devices like heart-valve frames and spine implants.

COMPONENTS FOR MEDICAL APPLICATIONS NITINOL, STAINLESS STEEL, COBALT-ALLOYS

Beside semi-finished products like wires, profiles or tubes, EUROFLEX also offers customer specified components. They can be cut, formed and bent. In addition EUROFLEX can offer various surface treatments like sand-blasting, trumbling, etching, polishing or plating. Combining those processing capabilities with Nitinol and it shape-setting properties opens a wide range to design functional components with superelastic or shape-memory behaviour.

The consistently high quality level of our products is ensured by a management system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13485.

EUROFLEX CONTINUOUSLY ELECTRO-POLISHED NITINOL WIRES FOR OPTIMAL SURFACE FINISH

At EUROFLEX, we are able to refine the surface of our products using various refinement technologies, including electro-polishing.

Our electro-polished wires show maximum surface quality resulting in:

- High corrosion resistance
- High biocompatibility
- High fatigue resistance
- Bright, smooth surface

The wire surface is smoothened and cleaned via electrochemical ablation using our reel-to-reel state-of-the-art electro-polishing process.

With the in-house designed continuous electro-polishing process the wires automatically result in low through-put times and thus are a cost-effective alternative to e-polishing processes based on piece goods. 

This process makes our Nitinol wires the go-to material for medical devices which require especially smooth and clean surfaces!

Possible applications of our electro-polished Nitinol wires are:

- Neurovascular applications
- orthopedic devices
- braided stents
