Medical Implant Device Chemicals


RBP Chemical

RBP Chemical Technology has solutions for polishing, passivation, deoxidizing and coating medical implant devices that decrease the risk of rejection.

Failure of an implanted medical device is not an option.


RBP Chemical Technology is the leader in development, manufacturing and the distribution of specialty chemical processes for the cleaning and passivation of implanted medical devices. Our processes are formulated to remove cutting oils, heavy oxidation and other soils from Nitinol, Cobalt Chrome, Stainless Steel and Titanium. In addition, RBP has developed electro and chemical polishing solutions to enhance the appearance and corrosion protection of the devices with only minimal amount of metal removal. This is beneficial in terms of quality, reliability and overall cost.

RBP Chemical Technology is dedicated to delivering intelligent business solutions that cost-effectively optimize the performance of your products – ensuring your devices function properly and meet or exceed customer expectations.

We collaborate with our customers to develop the right chemical technology solutions for their products – whether they be one of our off-the-shelf products or a custom product solution created by our product formulation experts.
