How well the implant bonds with the bone within the first 48 hours highly determines the success of a total hip or total knee replacement operation. Our expertise in the development of new material solutions for special applications has enabled us to design two unique, coarse powders for thermal spray coated medical implants.
Time Matters: Titanium Powders for “Scratch Fit” Implant Fixation
They offer both a thicker coating and rougher coating surface after thermal spraying, allowing for better ‘scratch fit’ properties in the critical time period when the implant needs short term fixation so that the bone can start growing into it.
- Specifically designed for medical devices thermal spray application
- Conform to the ASTM F1580 standard
- Increased surface roughness for better ‘scratch fit’ properties
