Acrylx Corrugated Tubing
Are the mixing tips, tubes, applicator gun and cartridge sterile?
No, these are all non-sterile. Customers typically use a two-phase technique when applying acrylic and pin frames. The first phase is the sterile phase and includes surgical approach, reduction, pin application and closure. The second, non-sterile phase, includes application of tubing mold and Acrylx followed by any final reduction and cure. Occasionally, surgeons have sterilized these Components using ethylene oxide, but it has not been proven that the actual resin is sterile.
