Resistant coating on Al alloys

  • Nanocrystalline oxide ceramic layer formed on Aluminium Alloys is characterised by:
  • Controlled thickness: 2 - 100 µm
  • High microhardness: 1000-1800 Hv
  • High corrosion resistance: upto 1000 hours salt spray, alloy dependant
  • High adhesion to Al substrate: > 300 MPa
  • Low friction coefficient pared with steel in standard lubricated environment: 0.04-0.08
  • Dimensional accuracy: Ceramic layer grows predominantly inside the substrate and practically does not change the dimensions of the object. Can be applied to complex shapes.
  • Enables to prevent galling of light alloy components
  • Continuous operating temperature: > 500 C
  • Fully Inorganic construction
  • Thermal conductivity: 7 W/mK
  • Dielectric strength: 50 KV/mm
  • Dielectric constant: around 10

Biocompatible coating for Ti implants:

  • Thickness 5-20 microns, controllable
  • Excellent adhesion to metal base
  • Highly developed surface, submicron pore size, controllable topography
  • High Hardness: 300-400 Hv
  • Exceptional surface wettability
  • Surface is capable of carrying medication or HA
  • Creates a barrier between metal and tissue
  • Can be applied to 3D printed Ti implants
  • Natural white colour on all Ti alloys, including Grade 5 Ti-6Al-4V
