    An autoclave comes in two models and is available in 150-, 200-, and 300-L sizes. Both models have a fully interlocked, easy-glide sliding door with a floating gasket to ensure a secure seal. The seal is automatically pulled away from the door at the end of each cycle to reduce wear. The autoclave

    downgauging: a 9-mil polyolefin film has the strength and durability of a 14-mil soft PVC film, according to the firm. Heat-weldable EM-8400A withstands autoclave, gamma, and EtO sterilization; exposure to high levels of gamma radiation, however, may result in slight visual or physical property changes

    . Investment or lost-wax casting works like this: Wax patterns of parts to be cast attach at the part gate(s) to a wax runner. The assembly is then repeatedly dipped (invested) in ceramic slurry and sand to form a thick shell. An autoclave melts away the wax, leaving behind the shell. A kiln fires the hollow

Of particular importance to the medical market is that some plastics may be highly suitable for sterilizing when molded but, when machined for prototypes, their dimensions and features can change significantly during autoclave, gamma, or EtO

    the mold. After the silicone is fully cured (approximately one day), the master pattern is removed, and the mold is reassembled, whereupon the urethane material is poured into the SRM to create the cast urethane part. Step 1: SLA Master. Step 2: Pour rubber. Step 3: Cast urethane. Step 4: Autoclave

    is more than 10 A, and, if not properly designed, the failure rates would be unacceptable. The handpiece also must be capable of withstanding multiple autoclave cycles. To overcome these issues, high-melt-temperature plastics were employed, a stainless-steel shroud was added to dissipate heat away
