1) As described on this Site, the FARBTEK™ color anodizing system applies color to the surface of stainless steel surgical instruments, medical equipment and other items. The FARBTEK™ permanent color identification and ID marking methods offered by Medical Optics® include embedded liquid plugs, liquid bands, Data Matrix barcodes and laser engraved items. Though very durable, FARBTEK™ color anodizing is not warranted as a permanent color identification or color accent method for stainless steel items, parts or components to which color anodizing is applied. Specific items to which color anodizing is applied may require special care and specifically recommended cleaning solvents to maintain the applied color for an extended period of time.

For further information about any of the FARBTEK™ color ID marking and anodizing options, please contact Medical Optics® and one of our technology specialists will answer any questions you may have regarding specific applications.
