ADDITIONAL COATING AND FINISHING CAPABILITIES

  • HA coating on titanium, cobalt-chromium or stainless steel
  • Our HA coating can be applied on any of our other coatings
  • Thick HA coating at up to 150 microns
  • TPS coating on titanium, titanium carbide or CoCr substrates that enables the coating that meet or exceed the FDA and ASTM requirements
  • Rough porous TPS coating with higher roughness and greater porosity (>100 micron pore size in all zones) of this coating meets the FDA and ASTM standards for porous coating
  • RBM surface treatment on titanium substrates creating a roughened surface comparable to a 100 mesh Al2O3 finish without leaving any embedded debris

  • Thick HA Coating at 150 microns
  • TPS/VPS orthopedic coating on titanium or CoCr substrates that enables the coating to exceed the ASTM requirement, eliminating cracking
  • RBM surface treatment on titanium substrates creating a roughened surface comparable to a 100 mesh Al2O3 finish without leaving any embedded debris
  • Composite coatings including HA on plasma, beads, irregular sintered coatings and TPS on RBM-prepared substrates
  • Porous coatings such as spherical bead, asymmetrical powder and irregular particle coatings, available in a range of powder sizes, types and coating processes to meet tight tolerances or unusual specifications
  • Rough porous TPS coating with higher roughness and greater porosity (>100 micron pore size in all zones) of this coating meets the ASTM standard for porous coating
  • Custom coating technologies: customer-driven solutions including traditional bead coatings and more novel applications such as porous metal foam
  • Proprietary HA coating on titanium, cobalt-chromium or stainless steel

OTHER CAPABILITIES

  • Passivation per ASTM F86: meeting the highest standards of cleanliness
  • Final clean and sterile packaging: in ISO class 7 certified clean rooms
  • Jet Wash Process: A lean cleaning process that helps in reducing the entrapped particles from blasting by more than 50% in weight compared to standard ultrasonic cleaning process
  • Quality control: including visual, dimensional and mechanical testing as well as NDT capability
