Titanium surgical instruments offer several advantages over stainless steel instruments.
Titanium instruments are lightweight with a high tensile strength. Titanium is durable, even after repeated autoclaving.
Titanium instruments are corrosion resistant, non-ferrous, non-magnetic and bio-compatible.
Those with hypersensitivity issues should use Titanium instead of Surgical Steel. Titanium is a preferred material for initial piercings because it's an elemental metal – it doesn't contain nickel. Titanium is as strong as steel, but as light as aluminum.
