Commercially Pure Titanium is ideally suited for a large range of medical applications. It is non-magnetic, biocompatible, and has the inherent ability to osseointegrate. These properties make "CP" titanium a logical choice for just about any object meant to be left inside the human body.
Among uses for the CP Grades in the medical industry are:
- Bone screws, plates, and other fixation devices
- Joint replacement components
- Dental root implants
- Surgical clips and staples
- Pacemaker (and other implantables) housings
Cp Grade 2 Titanium is the most commonly used and widely available grade of unalloyed titanium. The grade combines excellent corrosion resistance and weldability with good strength, ductility and formability.
