Micralox® – microcrystalline aluminum oxide coating

The MICRALOX® family of products offers superior patented aluminum oxide coatings with a microcrystalline barrier that revolutionizes aluminum anodizing with exceptional barrier properties and corrosion resistance over industry leading product life cycles. MICRALOX produces a long lasting, virtually indestructible surface that delivers dramatically superior chemical corrosion resistance and eliminates color fading due to super-heated steam, and is an excellent alternative to stainless steel, plastic and other materials.

Sanford Print™ – the only permanent solution for printing on aluminum

Permanently printing ink on aluminum is a difficult task, as the difference in coefficients of expansion between the ink and the metal often causes the ink to delaminate. Many applications require permanent printing in order to maintain traceability over the life of the product. This problem is solved when using Sanford Process’ SANFORD PRINT™ technology.

InfiNitiCoat™ – nitinol for interventional medical products

InfiNiTiCoat™ was developed by Precision Coating to optimize design, manufacture, assembly, and clinical performance of a rapidly growing class of medical devices used in interventional medicine. Nitinol is a desirable material for many interventional product platforms and is the preferred material for wires used in neurovascular, peripheral vascular, structural heart, urologic, endoscopic, and orthodontic devices, and procedures based on its super-elastic and shape memory properties.

IonGuard® – proven hardness improvement for titanium and cobalt chromium implants

N2 Biomedical’s proprietary IonGuard® ion implantation process utilizes direct ion beam bombardment to create a hard, low friction, and hydrophilic surface without adding a coating layer to the surface or changing the bulk properties of the device. This low temperature process has been used to treat millions of medical device implants including metal knees and hips and orthodontic arch wires.

7 Variables You Need to Consider when Printing and Marking on Anodized Aluminum Substrates on Medical Devices

The two most common choices for printing and marking medical devices on an anodized aluminum surface are laser and epoxy ink print. A third choice, Sanford Print™, where the ink is deposited into open pores of the anodic coating before being sealed, is a relatively recent addition. Determing which printing method is best depends largely on printing requirements, intended use for the device, cleaning methods and the design of the device. This paper discusses seven considerations to keep in mind when deciding what printing method to use.

Anodizing for Medical Applications: The Creation of MICRALOX and the Failings that Lead to It

Demand for high performing aluminum anodized products in the medical industry has never been higher. Driven by poor performing anodic coatings, the medical industry has attempted to replace aluminum anodized products with several substitutes. New technology, MICRALOX®, has been born of this demand, which is increasing the chances that anodized aluminum will remain the top choice of manufacturers. This discussion explores this new technology, as well as the possible choices in the medical world for reusable medical equipment that undergoes sterilization, cleaning, and/or disinfecting.

N2 Biomedical Announces the First Surgical Implant of a Spinal Device Coated with the Company’s Thin, Ion-Assisted Titanium Coating Technology

BEDFORD, Mass., Jan. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — N2 Biomedical, a leading provider of coating and surface treatment solutions to the medical device industry, today announced that the first PEEK interbody fusion device coated with the company’s thin titanium coating technology was successfully implanted in a patient. The coated device had previously received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. FDA. N2 Biomedical’s thin titanium coating, which is a member of the company’s NanoTitanium™ family of coatings, is less than a micrometer thick and is deposited using an advanced vacuum coating technology known as Ion Beam Assisted Deposition (IBAD), a process which combines evaporation with concurrent ion bombardment to provide unparalleled coating adhesion and control over properties such as surface morphology and coating density. The coating process has been fully validated, and N2 Biomedical has a Master File available for reference at the FDA.
