Extruded aluminum tubing and extruded shapes are used widely in the medical device industry. With proper finishing, aluminum is less porous and cleaner than stainless steel, and the inert chemical compounds in aluminum, combined with appropriate finishing, help prevent corrosion and chemical absorption, thus preventing contamination and easing the cleaning process in medical applications. Additionally, aluminum becomes stronger as temperatures become colder, making it an ideal choice for low-temperature environments and applications such as those found in biomedical research.
