3rd Party Evaluation
Every material lot has been tested by an independent ISO 17025 accredited laboratory to confirm that the material satisfies the requirements of ASTM F560 / ISO 13782 and is suitable for ball processing. The laboratory analyses the chemical and mechanical characteristics of the wire and compare them again the specifications and issues an report

Conflict Free Sourcing
All X-medics’ tantalum products are conflict-free. X-medics only works with suppliers that can show evidence for a continuous 3rd party auditing, performed by independent auditors appointed by Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition (www.eicc.info), or similar recognized bodies. Proper origin of the materials, and compliance with the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act’s conflict minerals is required to be documented, and this documentation can be tracked on the certificate that follows any shipment from X-medics. X-medics does not use tantalum minerals with origin in the DRC Congo, or other conflict areas covered by the law.

The produced spheres are tested for cytotoxicity by an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory. The test is done to verify that no harmful substances (process chemicals, cleaning agents or particles) remain in critical (cytotoxic) amounts after the tantalum beads have been processed and cleaned.
