High-tech lubricants for medical technology

A long tool life, high level of machining performance, high surface finish quality and excellent washability — even for materials that are difficult to machine, such as titanium, and stainless steel or ceramic. Medical technology applications demand the very best performance from coolants. The fluids—alongside production processes, raw materials and final cleaning—are an essential factor in producing any implant destined for use in the human body.

Medical Implants

“Standing the test of time“

Manufacturers of implants, prostheses and medical tools must be able to rely on the ability of their selected lubricant to meet all fluid process parameters in a stable and safe way, with a consistently high standard of quality — and also for a long period of time. Rhenus Lub works with customers to define individual requirements for machining performance, surface finish quality, hygiene and flash point, and selects a suitable rhenus coolant from a portfolio of water-miscible and neat oil products that was created specifically for the medical technology sector.

Coolants for medical technology applications also meet the most stringent standards for environmental and health protection
