Materials for medical use

Gold and platinum are widely used in medical applications because of excellent corrosion-resistance and radiopaque property.

Au, Pt, and Pt alloys (pipes, wires, and other materials)


With excellent corrosion resistance and radiopaque property, Pt alloys exhibit high mechanical strength.
