Using our ability to create novel materials to add functionality to your medical devices, by incorporating antimicrobial ions into the chemistry of your material or by modifying the surface properties of the materials, we offer drug-free solutions for preventing and treating infections. Applications include implantable and electronic device coatings.
Using our knowledge of materials and how they work together, we’ve developed a range of novel composite materials for medical devices that are biocompatible and bioresorbable. One example is the development of biodegradable cardiovascular stents with superior mechanical properties.
We’ve developed a range of materials for hard and soft tissue replacement and bone repair, and drug delivery applications with enhanced biocompatibility and bioactivity.
Using our novel sintering technology, Flash Sintering (FS), we've created stronger ceramics for orthopedic and dental applications, as well as more durable coatings.
We have developed novel processing technologies that enable superior strength and improved properties of ceramics and composites (Viscous Plastic Processing and Flash Sintering technology).
