Medthin™ 04 TiON

TiON coating for use in hospital environment

Medthin 04 TiON, has “sand beach” color or gray color. The coating evidenced considerable reduction of colony-forming units (CFU) in testing according to ISO 22196 which makes it an ideal coating for use in hospital environment. The coating is deposited at 300°C but it can be adapted to the temperature of the base material per request.
