Biocompatibility is the ability of a material or component to be readily accepted by living tissue.


Determining compatibility with body tissue is a critical preliminary requirement for developing medical implants. The surface finish and the overall design of an implant are just as important for biocompatibility as the chemical composition. Oerlikon Metco’s coating systems and biocompatible materials are used by the manufacturers of implants to ensure that both the physical and chemical characteristics of implants match the body tissues they are replacing.
