Materials for high purity and medical device applications
Applications requiring high purity environments demand fasteners that not only function mechanically, but also are inert to the process environment. In sensitive environments like semiconductor processing, pharmaceuticals, specialty chemicals and high temperature vacuum furnaces, Extreme Bolt & Fastener offers a variety of engineered polymer, advanced ceramic and specialty metal fasteners that meet some of the strictest requirements.
Materials that typically are used in high-purity applications include:
Some things to consider when evaluating fasteners for high-purity applications:
- Is outgassing a concern?
- Is inertness or the reactivity of the material important?
- Is the thermal stability of the material a concern?
- Grade or purity of the raw material needed?
