/ Titanium anodization
TiHard™ is an electrochemical surface treatment process based on titanium alloy anodization (Type II). It allows to obtain a thick and compact oxide layer that insulates the underlying bulk metal and results in improved mechanical performances and reliability of the final product.
- Hard titanium oxide surface with n dimensional change
- Increased wear resistance and fatigue strength
- Increased fretting corrosion resistance
TiColor™ is an electrochemical surface treatment process based on titanium alloy anodization (Type III). It allows to obtain a thin oxide layer that insulates the underlying bulk metal and results in a wide scale of bright interference colors.
- Thin titanium oxide surface with no dimensional change
- Wide range of bright colors available
- Improved identification of implant by color coding
- Biocompatible coating
SelecTive™ is an electrochemical surface treatment process based on titanium alloy anodization (Type III) paired with masking or selective post processes in order to impose/remove the anodization only where required in isolated regions of the part.
3DGrowth™ is a patented surface treatment specifically developed for titanium (Ti) substrates. Its unique surface functionalization characteristics enhance and accelerate the osteointegration capabilities of medical implants. The surface functionalization is effective on hidden surfaces and can therefore also be used on lattice structures.
3DGrowth™ can be applied to a variety of medical devices, such as:
- Acetabular cups
- Spinal cages
- Dental implants
- Trauma screws
- Pedicle screws
The final surface features a highly hydrophilic micro-texture. It is composed by a thin anatase layer enriched with calcium, phosphates, silicon and sodium ions.
Compared to the initial titanium surface, 3DGrowth™ leads to enhanced cell adhesion, enhanced wettability to biological fluids, improved osteointegration and high mineralization potential.
