Hermann Bantleon GmbH presents Avilub Metasolv 706 and Avilub Metasolv 1491 products, which can also be used in medical technology. Titanium test specimens were cleaned with them under practical conditions and subjected to test procedures. The results confirm that both products are suitable for cleaning tasks in medical technology. This is supported by the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology IGB, Stuttgart, which carried out a test of the cleaned components for biocompatibility or cytotoxic effect according to DIN ISO 1099-5, 2009.

The examination of the extracts of the cleaning residues of the two media, both non-sterile and heat-sterilised, showed no cytotoxic effects on HaCaT keratinocytes. Specially developed media are required for the production of components for high-vacuum applications, e.g. those used in the semiconductor industry (EUV and DUV technology). In this context, OEMs often have special requirements for the processing and cleaning media (ban on HIO elements). The company develops and produces products specifically for this area.
