Anti-Bacterial Stainless Steel in Medicine

Thanks to its many desirable properties such as durability and resistance to corrosion and extremes of temperature, stainless steel is used in thousands of applications across the spectrum of industry. One sector that relies on safe, precision-cut stainless steel is the medical industry, where the metal is used in everything from scalpels and other surgical instruments to the essential components of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners. Stainless steel used for such applications must be of the highest grade and also exhibit strong anti-bacterial properties.

Germs and bacteria such as E.coli, MRSA and Micrococcus Luteus can have serious negative effects on the human body, even resulting in death in severe cases. Operating theatres, surgeries, hospitals, care homes and other such areas must be sterile due to the nature of their use and stainless steel instruments with an anti-bacterial coating are the ideal way to ensure that this sterility is maintained. Other areas where germs are a particular threat, such as education facilities and laboratories, also benefit from using anti-bacterial stainless steel.

As part of our ongoing commitment to providing the most comprehensive range of stainless steel products, BS Stainless Ltd supply a range of stainless steel that provides effective protection against the germs and bacteria mentioned above, as well as several other dangerous types. The anti-bacterial property remains unchanged with any forming or cleaning of the stainless steel, which is available in a variety of grades to suit particular applications. The coating is also unaffected by touching, spilling or other marks and will, like all stainless steel, continue to perform to optimum functionality for many years with little maintenance.

Stainless steel for the medical industry is supplied by us as stainless steel blanks or stainless steel sheet which is specifically cut to bespoke requirements. Meeting and exceeding all quality, health and safety specifications, these products carry the same 100% satisfaction guarantee as our entire range of stainless steel.
