TECAFORM® MT (From Celcon M-25 resin)

TECAFORM® MT is Ensinger's specially formulated acetal. The material is resistant to multiple cleaning and disinfection agents, and to a number of solvents. It can be steam sterilized by medical industry's usual methods, and will maintain good strength, stiffness, and dimensional stability. Certifications may reference Celcon M-25 resin only.

  • Easily machinable

TECAFORM® MT is particularly suited for use as sizing trials in knee, hip, and shoulder replacement procedures.
