Flubetech and Eurecat-CTM are involved in the research project for advanced coatings to improve the clinical success of prosthetic implants and surgical instruments.
Flubetech leads the Innoplasmed project in which it participates with Eurecat-CTM Technology Center. The objective of the research is the development of advanced coatings to solve the biological, chemical stability and mechanical problems that are identified in materials for prostheses, implants and surgical instruments.
The project is focused on innovation of coatings obtained using high energy plasma technology for biomedical applications. The HPPMS (High Power Plasma Magnetron Sputtering) technology will guide the project objectives towards an improvement for the long-term clinical success.
The coatings will be processed from the develomplent and industrial implementation of two innovative coating techniques based on hihg-energy plasma: The magnetron sputtering with high power pulses (HPPMS) and the ion implantation by plasma immersion (PIIID).
The Innoplasmed project will last for 3 years with a tota budged of 432.326€ which will be founded by Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad in its program Retos-Colaboración 2015 del Plan Estatal de Investigación Científica y Técnica y de Innovación 2013-2016.
