  • What is Bioplast® ?

    Bioplast® is a form of medical material that is safe for piercing and can be autoclaved (sterilized). This material is recommended for a first piercing (initial piercing) because of its flexibility and biocompatibility.

    Bioplast® can be cut to any length and threaded by any metal ball closure. It is available in 8 fancy colors and different shapes (Banana bars, Circular Bars, barbells, Labrets, eyebrow and nose studs). It can be combined with SS316L or Titanium.

    Bioplast® adjusts to the body temperature and not to the outside air temperature, like metals. Therefore, people getting pierced with Bioplast® have less swellings and infections. The ealing process is much faster than with any other materials. Bioplast® does not contain nickel that can be a reason for allergic reactions.

    It is very flexible and light so it makes it ideal for piercing to minimize the risk of injury. Also it heals faster with Bioplast® and it has no allergic reactions (no nickel)

    Especially for Labrets, Bioplast® is considered one of the best materials to use as it does not harm the tooth enamel as metals do.

    Autoclaves comes in two varieties: steam and chemical. Steam autoclaves are the most common and the standard In Body Piercing. These use steam to sterilize objects, reaching a high temperature (121 °C) and pressure (15PSI) to kill microorganisms. Chemical autoclaves, or chemiclaves, are an alternative piece of equipment. Like with steam autoclaves, chemiclaves use steam under high pressure and temperature. They also use alcohol and formaldehyde vapors for additional sterilization.

  • Is your Surgical Steel Nickel free?

    There is a difference between Nickel contain and Nickel release. Surgical Steel 316L always contains 6-13% of Nickel. If someone argues that Surgical Steel has no Nickel in it, it cannot be true since it would not be 316L.

    What is the most important is the Nickel release to the body, which should not be more than 0.5%.

    The European Nickel free standard states that the rate of nickel release from the parts of products coming into direct and prolonged contact with the skin should not be greater than 0.5 μg/cm2/week. In other words, these products should not release more than 0.05% nickel (no more than 1 part in 2000 should be Nickel).

    This rate of nickel release is even lower for piercing: 0.2 μg/cm2/week. (View the materials page to download all our nickel certificates.)

    Our products only contain 0.1 μg/cm2/week.
