Give the durability of medical devices a healthy upgrade.

Medical instruments and devices must last and perform reliably and consistently. For manufacturers looking to meet these demands and use lighter weight, lower-cost base materials, thin film coatings from Vapor Tech deposition systems might be the answer.

By applying thin film coatings from Vapor Tech deposition systems to the exposed surfaces of components and hardware, you can meet the performance requirements for critical instruments and devices and give lighter weight parts the desirable appearance of high-end materials.

Improved surface finishes
Thin film coatings include biocompatible materials that fortify surfaces without impacting critical dimensions.
Light metal alloys
Replace heavy steel and iron with coated light metal alloys to reduce the weight of instruments requiring less effort when in use.
Protection for lightweight parts
Hard, low-friction physical vapor deposition (PVD) coatings protect lightweight parts from wear and reduce friction-induced energy losses.
Surface properties
Increasing a surface’s hardness and reducing friction between contacting surfaces can enable instruments to perform well with repeated use.

Make medical devices and instruments more durable, efficient, and desirable

With a Vapor Tech deposition system, you can apply coatings that improve the hardness, durability, and appearance of parts used in medical devices and instruments, as well as use metallic colors to better identify parts and products.

DLC coatings enhance hardness, improve durability and reduce friction.
Make soft substrates durable.
Vapor Tech’s proprietary LTAVD® process is a proven solution for applying durable coatings on low melting temperature parts.
Increase surface hardness to improve durability
Diamond-like carbon (DLC), plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD), and RAAMS™ highly ionized magnetron sputtering produce hard, low-friction surfaces on instruments designed for repeated use and sterilization.

Minimize environmental impacts and improve products

Conventional coating methods, such as powder coating, painting, and electroplating, produce hazardous waste – which increases management costs and requires special licenses. Hexavalent chrome may deliver a great metallic look, but it comes with high costs, complexity, and toxic by-products.

Vapor Tech deposition systems do not emit toxic by-products. But the benefits go far beyond the environmental aspect. Our systems enable you to increase color options, improve durability, and preserve the part’s details. Improve your product and minimize the impact on the earth. Sometimes it’s easy to be green.
