Passivation

Paragon Medical offers a complete range of passivation services to make sure critical components remain clean and corrosion-resistant. These include aqueous, ultrasonic and vapor cleaning processes. Because even stainless steel can gather impurities during machining, we use ASTM A967-compliant automated passivation processes to remove impurities and protect against corrosion, including Nitric 3 treatment which is particularly effective for hard-to-clean round and tubular medical components.

Electropolishing

Our electropolish services utilize advanced techniques to precisely remove unwanted metal, achieving tolerances of 20 to 40 microns. This process not only improves the passive surface but also ensures a uniform cosmetic polish finish. Beyond aesthetics, it eliminates burrs and sharp edges, resulting in a smooth final product. Recognizing the dual benefits of electropolish as a Passivation treatment, we offer a comprehensive solution for polished finishes.

Laser Etching

Our laser etch services address the emerging standards in the medical device industry, specifically the GS1 2D Datamatrix barcode laser mark designed to meet FDA and EUMDR requirements. Our robust laser marking process withstands challenges posed by passivation, preventing fading and degradation of laser markings.
