Cardiovascular implant devices include pacemakers, coronary stents, heart valves, annuloplasty rings and guiding wires. Each of these life sustaining components has specific surface property requirements and is, among other materials, typically made of titanium, CoCr or steel alloys. Medthin™ 43 ADLC, a dense carbon based coating with very low friction properties, high hardness and high ductility, is ideal for coating of instruments and implantable components.
- Low friction
- Ion release reduction
