PVD Coating for Medical Devices, Parts, and Surgical Tools

Your medical devices require characteristics not available in the base material. These include excellent hardness and toughness, biocompatibility, low coefficient of friction, and compatibility with cleaners and other solvents. Coating applications for medical device finishing include:

  • Orthopedic implants
  • Plates, screws, and tapers
  • Guidewires
  • Surgical tools
  • Blades, scissors, forceps, clamps
  • Tableting

Dental applications include:

  • Dental implants
  • Burs and Diamonds (dental drill bits)
  • Handpiece (dental drills)
  • Instruments (scalers, curettes, forceps, elevators)

Characteristics of Medical Device Finishing & Coatings

Our coating optimization services ensure you get your product’s exact characteristics to make it stand out from its competition. Our systems can coat a wide variety of materials and part geometries. Standard medical device coatings include titanium nitride (TiN), zirconium nitride (ZrN), and diamond-like carbon (DLC).
