About Implant grade titanium ASTM F 136:

Implant grade titanium with ASTM F136 certification is considered one of the best metals for cartilage piercings and is highly recommended for sensitive ears due to several key reasons:

1. **Biocompatibility**: ASTM F136 is a specification that sets rigorous standards for the chemical composition and mechanical properties of titanium alloy used in surgical implants.
Implant grade titanium specifically meets these standards, ensuring it is biocompatible and safe for prolonged contact with the human body. This means it is less likely to cause allergic reactions or sensitivities, making it suitable for sensitive skin and ears.

2. **Hypoallergenic Properties**: Titanium is inherently hypoallergenic because it is highly resistant to corrosion and biocompatible with human tissues. It does not contain nickel, which is a common allergen found in many other metals. 

3. **Lightweight and Durable**: Titanium is lightweight yet exceptionally strong and durable. This makes it comfortable to wear for extended periods, such as in cartilage piercings, without causing strain or discomfort. Its durability also ensures that the jewelry maintains its shape and appearance over time.

4. **Resistance to Corrosion**: Titanium is highly resistant to corrosion from exposure to body fluids, moisture, and external elements. This property helps prevent tarnishing and ensures the longevity of the jewelry. For cartilage piercings that may take longer to heal and require consistent care, titanium's corrosion resistance is particularly beneficial.

5. **Smooth Surface**: Implant grade titanium jewelry is usually polished to a smooth finish, which reduces the likelihood of irritation and makes it easier to clean. A smooth surface is crucial for piercings as it minimizes friction and potential damage to the healing tissue.

6: It is plated with gold PVD. Gold PVD offers advantages such as uniform coating thickness, high purity, and adherence to various substrate materials. It is a versatile process that allows for precise control over the properties of the deposited gold film.


Overall, implant grade titanium with ASTM F136 certification is preferred for cartilage piercings and sensitive ears because of its biocompatibility, hypoallergenic properties, durability, and resistance to corrosion.


These qualities make it one of the safest choices available for body jewelry, especially for individuals prone to skin sensitivities particularly for cartilage piercings.
