Reduce Risk by Preventing Surface Damage

Understand the danger of surface damage on aluminum and stainless steel

In the harsh environments of the sterile processing department—automated washers, ultra-sonic cleaners, high temperature steam sterilizers and low temperature chemical sterilizers—instruments and containers need to be able to withstand challenging conditions. Rusted and corroded surfaces have microscopic pits and fissures that can harbor and shield microorganisms from the effects cleaning and sterilization. And that creates risks—for your process and your patients.

Case Medical aluminum products are anodized and sealed to resist the corrosive effects of harsh cleaners; high temperatures; and the effects of hydrogen peroxide and other gases. All of our stainless steel products and components go through a process known as passivation, helping to ensure the stainless steel stays bright and free of blemishes and corrosion over its working life.

The result: our SteriTite® container system resists rust and corrosion and is validated for all modes of sterilization. And we recommend that you protect and care for aluminum and stainless steel instruments and containers with our line of Case Solutions® and SuperNova® pH-neutral cleaners, multi-enzymatic pre-soak, and detergents, all EPA Safer Choice awarded.

Here at Case Medical we care about the quality and durability of all our products and we care about infection prevention. Learn more about Case Medical’s solutions including the SteriTite® container system, SuperNova® and PentaZyme® instrument chemistries, education resources, and more.
