E.O. (Ethylene Oxide) Gas Sterilization
E.O. has high sterility assurance level and penetrates very well. Piercing jewelry sterilized with E.O. will stay sterile for at least 5 years when kept away from light. We clean and QC every item before the process. Items are packaged unassembled as it assures the sterilization of the thread. This meets all necessary standards in Canada and Europe.
Bioplast ™ is a trademarked medical grade plastic. It was created in 1998 in Austria and is still produced in Tyrol. It was formerly sold under the name of PMFK until in 2003 the name Bioplast ™ was trademarked. Bioplast ™ is Biocompatible, flexible and can be cut to any length and threaded by any metal ball closure.
Bioplast ™ adjusts to the body temperature and not to the outside air temperature, like metals. Therefore, people getting pierced with Bioplast ™, have less swelling and infections. The healing process with Bioplast ™ is faster than with any other materials. No allergic reactions (no nickel).
Bioplast ™ can be sterilized by autoclave. It also has a competitive price and comes in 3 fancy colors, can be combined with SS316L or Titanium. Bioplast ™ is not visible in X-Rays if used on its own without metal attachments. Bioplast ™ is the best material for initial piercing.
It is available in the following colors:
Titanium 6AL-4V-ELI, ASTM 136
Titanium is ideal for both initial body piercings and healed piercings as it is compliant with the EU Nickel Directive introduced in Europe in 2001. Because of its virtually 'Nickel Free' content Titanium has become one of the preferred materials used in piercing jewelry within the borders of the European Union.
Grade Ti6AL-4V, ASTM F136 is the specification for the alloy to be used for surgical implants. The color of titanium is a silvery metallic white. An anodization process allows the metal to have a variety of pleasant colors. The color of anodized titanium parts is determined by the tension applied during polishing. Titanium is only half the weight of steel and twice as strong. Titanium can be sterilized in an autoclave.
WHAT IS PREMIUM CRYSTAL?
Premium crystals are man-made gems manufactured in Austria. In 1892, Daniel Swarovski invented a machine for making precision-cut, beautiful, high-quality lead glass crystals using quartz, sand, and minerals. The exact proportions of these raw materials have remained a company secret. This specialized manufacturing process ensures the highest possible degree of precision which produces brilliant crystals. For five generations, the Swarovski family has continued the tradition of making the most recognized crystals in the world out of their factory in Wattens, Austria.
WHY ARE PREMIUM CRYSTALS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN GLASS?
The method of production and processing of raw resources are important factors in the quality of finished crystals. Swarovski uses only the finest materials to fashion faceted lead glass that is known around the world for its brilliance and value. Superior production, materials, cutting, and polishing are what set Premium crystals apart from other glass works. According to Swarovski, “Cutting hard materials such as crystal and gems, in such a way that they have a hundred identical facets in several directions, is a very complicated task; each direction of the reflected light must first be calculated by computer, then this has to be simulated in 3D, optimized and finally converted into control programs for complex machinery.”
