PVD, BIOMEDICINE COATINGS

BioCarbide ® Coating based on amorphous carbon C:H almost diamond

Biocarbide’s properties

  • Since this coating is carbon-based, it is hemo- and bio-compatible.
  • Barrier coating that avoids ion leaching.
  • Highly resistant to corrosion. Sterilizable.  
  • Highly resistant to wear.
  • Low forming temperature, lower than 220 ºC.
  • High hardness (2000-5000HV). Very low friction coefficient (0.01).
  • Shining black or matte finish.
  • Possibility of coating titanium and their respective alloys, stainless steels and polymeric materials.

Biocarbide’s sucessful applications

  • Protection of components subjected to wear and friction.
  • Fixation elements in dental implants.
  • Surgical tools.
  • Protection against corrosion.
  • Components in contact with bloodstream.
  • Aesthetic improvements.

BioNitride ® Coating based on TiN

BioNitride’s properties

  • Totally bioinert.
  • Sterilizable.
  • Highly resistant to wear.
  • Low friction coefficient.
  • High hardness (2300HV).
  • Barrier coating that avoids ion leaching.
  • Shining golden finish.

BioNitride’s sucessful applications

  • Tools protection subjected to wear
    • Surgical components.
    • Dental prosthesis component.
  • Improve of the ceramic-metal compatibility.
    • Dental prosthesis.
