Medthin™ coatings for medical applications

The new generation of biocompatible Medthin coatings are used on a wide variety of medical implants and instruments in the following subsegments:

Solutions for the most demanding applications

The thin-film Medthin coatings were designed with medical applications in mind, at the Ionbond medical competence center in Switzerland. These biocompatible coatings are designed to increase product lifetime and reduce adverse patient reactions.
They have excellent properties:

  • High adhesion to substrates such as titanium, CoCrMo and stainless steel grades
  • High resistance to mechanical and chemical degradation
  • High hardness and scratch resistance
  • Low friction and wear
  • Substantial reduction of nickel or cobalt ion release, because the coating acts as physical barrier between substrate and body fluids
  • Reduction of bacterial proliferation
