ANATOMETAL titanium jewelry is made in ASTM F136 certified material.
Lightweight, durable and significantly harder than most materials, ASTM F136 Titanium is used for wristwatches and glasses’ frames, in the aerospace industry and for dental and medical implants (ie. pacemakers and artificial joints).
Not only is Titanium is highly bio-compatible, but also aesthetically pleasing when polished to a mirror finish. It can also be anodized in several different colors.
Titanium is about 50% lighter than steel, making it perfect for jewelry in large gauges and sizes.
ASTM stands for American Society for Testing and Materials and their standards are used around the world to enhance safety and improve product quality of metals.
Although very few, some people is allergic to Titanium. If you are worried, you could take an allergy test at the doctor’s office to be sure.
How to take care of your Titanium Body Jewelry
Jewelry that is going to be used in a healing piercing must be sterilized beforehand.
Before being used it in a healed piercing, it can be washed with soap and warm water and wiped down with propanol or 70% isopropyl alcohol.
While wearing it, it is a good idea to wash the jewelry regularly for example while taking a shower. Avoid leaving soap or shampoo on the piercing, as it could be cause of irritation.
