The effects of sterilization on medical materials and welded devices

W.J. Rogers,     Consultant, USA

Abstract:

The effects of a sterilization method on medical materials such as polymers are diverse. The number of sterilization agents is few without significant adverse effects to materials and polymers. Effects of sterilization methods consider not only chemical and physical effects, but also some effects on applications such as welding and device compatibility. Selecting the right method for a particular or specific product or procedure can be challenging in some situations, but beneficial and critical within other cases.
