X-medics’ standard Rod tolerance is +/- 0.020. For selected diameters a high tolerance option (-0.005 mm / + 0.010 mm) is offered as well

Surgical tantalum is available in two grades – R05200 (electron beam / vacuum arc melted) and R05400 (sintered). Tantalum R05200 and Tantalum R05400 are equally suitable for surgery and offer almost similar mechanical and chemical characteristics.

X-medics’ wire wire on spool is available as

  • Annealed wire
  • unannealed wire

Annealed wire is softer and more ductile than unannealed wire and suitable for plastic deformation. Unannealed wire is more suitable for machining operations like cutting, grinding, drilling etc.

An alternative option to unannealed wire on spool are tantalum rods (straightened tantalum wire) developed for manual or semi-automated processing.
