The PVD Coatings in Medical Industry History
The PVD coating technology has been introduced to the medical device industry since late 1980s, physical vapor deposition (PVD) has become widely used to deposit wear-resistant thin-film coatings on a variety of medical devices, including orthopedic implants, pacemakers, surgical instruments, orthodontic appliances and dental instruments.
The Coating Properties and Applications
The value of PVD technology rests in its ability to modify the surface properties of a device without changing the underlying material properties and biomechanical functionality.
PVD coatings provide a number of benefits to medical devices in addition to hardness and adhesion. The most significant are
Improved wear resistance
Decorative colors & aesthetic
Bone Impolant Moving Components (hips, ankles etc.)
Surgical Tools (Instruments)
Dental Instruments and Brain Implants
Orthopedics, Arthroscopic and Endoscopic Components
