We offer a number of additional services to complement the wide range of products and custom-made solutions we can provide to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the medical field.
Additional services for medical implants and instruments include passivation and surface finishing.
We also offer a number of laboratory and other services that are outlined below.
Iron in the material and iron contamination created during fabrication is subject to rust and corrosion.
This surface iron is removed during passivation, resulting in a less chemically reactive surface.
Lincotek Medical also offering Citric and Nitric Passivation as per ASTM A967.
/ Surface finishing
The following finishing processes are available: sandblasting; tumbling; lapping, grinding; laser marking; and welding.
In addition, chrome coating and epoxy resin color coding is available for medical implants.
/ Laboratory services
Our laboratories are under the Company quality certification (ISO 13485).
We provide the following type of characterization testing:
To assist, qualify and validate the process of cleaning, packaging and sterilization
Coating characterization – mechanical, chemical, and physical testing including methods such as tensile testing, X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared (FITR) spectroscopy
Powder analysis (e.g., granulometry, morphology, porosity, and crystallinity)
/ Other services
We can also offer you the following additional services:
Batch number identification by laser marking for metallic medical devices
Engraving ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) components
Passivation for coated or treated medical devices
Shot-peening and surface sandblasting with automatic validated processes
Validated cleaning technologies for titanium- and HAP-coated implants
Validation of ᵧ-ray ethylene oxide (ETO) sterilization
These treatments are performed with extremely low impurity levels.
Contaminants are negligible as required for medical applications.
