The implantable Titanium MIM components are approved around the globe for implantation into the human body. These parts are manufactured and certified according to the following ASTM standards:

  • ASTM F2885-17: “Standard Specification for Metal Injection Molded Titanium-6Aluminum-4Vanadium Components for Surgical Implant Applications”
  • ASTM F2989-13: “Standard Specification for Metal Injection Molded Unalloyed Titanium Components for Surgical Implant Applications”

In addition, our Ti MIM material has been tested for biocompatibility, toxicity, geometric repeatability, mechanical and chemical material characteristics, surface finish, density, microstructure, fatigue life, stress corrosion cracking, weldability and more.

Our Ti Powder Metallurgy manufacturing processes are proven with validated equipment and processes for the medical industry. 

The first Titanium MIM parts had approval to implant in Europe Asia and South America in 2006. In 2012 the first Titanium MIM parts made by Element22 received FDA approval to implant in USA.
