RBP Releases Electropolish 2152 for Nitinol and Titanium Based Embedded Medical Devices


Reading time ( words)

RBP Chemical Technology is pleased to announce the release of another innovation in its proprietary portfolio of engineered processes for the cleaning, deoxidation and polishing of titanium and titanium alloys. The ElectroPolish 2152 is a non-aqueous, sub-room temperature electropolishing solution designed to yield a superior surface finish and has been shown to provide a uniformly polished surface with minimal metal removal.  Use of the Electropolish 2152 enhances the corrosion resistance and thus the biocompatibility of the embedded medical device.

Electropolish 2152’s Positive Customer Impact

RBP Chemical Technology has over 25 years of experience with the development, formulation and implementation of specialty processes for the cleaning, deoxidation and electropolishing/chemical polishing of embedded medical devices. The Electropolish 2152 is pre-mixed and ready to use. This eliminates any handling of multiple components and reduces risk to those working with this process. With properly controlled conditions of voltage/current and time as well as proper fixturing, the Electropolish 2152 yields excellent results on parts with complex design and geometry.

Electropolish 2152 Highlights -

  • Non-aqueous, sub-room temperature electropolishing solution designed to yield a superior surface finish
  • Shown to provide a uniformly polished surface with minimal metal removal
  • Enhances the corrosion resistance and thus the biocompatibility of the embedded medical device
  • Pre-mixed and ready to use, eliminating any handling of multiple components and reduces risk to those working with this process

EIPC Technical Snapshot: 5G and Loss Minimisation

03/26/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Bringing a specialised technical area into sharp focus, this month’s topic was “5G and the understanding of loss minimisation at the PCB level,” with papers on dielectric material, copper foil, and modelling solutions. The webinar was moderated by EIPC board member Paul Waldner managing director of Multiline International Europa, who admitted that he had managed to get a haircut especially for the occasion!

PCB Surface Preparation Before Solder Mask on Non-copper Finishes

04/08/2020 | Nikolaus Schubkegel
A circuit board is made of copper. Usually, final finishes are applied after the solder mask process. In some cases, for special applications, the final finish may be applied before solder mask. In this case, we have solder mask on ENIG or galvanic nickel-gold. It is also possible to have tin or tin-lead under solder mask; this was an old technology that no longer plays a role today.
