Medthin™ 01 TiN

A reference coating for implants and instruments

Medthin™ 01 TiN has high wear resistance, low stress, superior adhesion and is an excellent chemical barrier, which makes it an ideal coating for implants and medical instruments. Medthin™ 01 is suitable for coating on UHMWPE and for Coating on Coating (CoC) contact for orthopedic implants and spine applications. It is frequently used for trauma and fixation components made of titanium and stainless steels.  Its high resistance to alkaline and acidic cleaning and sterilization cycles makes it a superior alternative to chrome plating on surgical and dental instruments. Medthin™ 01 TiN is deposited at temperatures between 150 °C and 500 °C. The wide range of temperatures allows for a variety of materials to be coated by means of adapting the deposition temperatures to suit the substrate materials without impacting geometries.
