ASTM F2129 Electrochemical Corrosion testing of medical devices

Element performs electrochemical corrosion testing per ASTM F2129 to ensure that medical devices are safe, and provided the intended benefits to the patient.

The human body is a corrosive environment for any metallic implantable device. In addition to causing device failure, chemical interactions between the body and a device can have harmful biological consequences. Our electrochemical corrosion labs use cyclic potentiodynamic polarization methods to simulate the biological environment, helping to detect and address issues in the lab before they become failures in the body.

Our team of over 9,000 Engaged Experts in North America, Europe, The Middle East, Australia, Asia and Africa are ready to help you.
