IMPLANT COATINGS

Biomedical

WHEN THE MEDICAL APPLICATION STARTED PEOPLE WENT TO APS. BIOMEDICAL IMPLANTS WERE A VIABLE OPTION FOR PATIENTS NEEDING A JOINT REPLACEMENT. THE ORTHOPEDIC MARKETPLACE AT THE TIME WAS UNABLE TO CREATE A STRONG, PERMANENTLY FIXED, CEMENTLESS IMPLANT.

APS’ response to this demand derived the process of applying porous, bioactive coatings to orthopedic implants. Today, APS produces TI 64, commercially pure titanium (CP Ti),  and hydroxyapatite (HA) orthopedic implant coatings for seven of the ten largest medical manufacturers in the world. APS’ titanium (Ti-6AL-4V) and hydroxyapatite coatings possess high tensile strength, low debris, and rough irregular surfaces for superior osseointegration. These materials are wear-resistant, possess a high strength-to-weight ratio, and promote osseointegration between bone and implant. Between its US headquarters, Ireland and China, APS Materials has fourteen dedicated biomedical vacuum spray chambers to serve customers.

Provides Superior Adhesion and Promotes Osseointegration

Our proprietary process for titanium coating offers unrivaled quality and craftsmanship in every product we create. This process minimizes adhesion and facilitates osseointegration. We have extensive experience processing a wide variety of PEEK spinal implants in our dedicated spinal production cell. This ensures a high-quality coating while retaining your implant’s geometric characteristics. We exceed industry standards in all we do because that’s the right thing to do. When you turn to APS Materials, you always get more.

HYDROXYAPATITE COATING

Superior, Clean Coating

Hydroxyapatite (HA) coating is primarily composed of calcium and phosphorous. This composition promotes osseointegration between bone and orthopedic implants, allowing for the ultimate in structural and functional connection. Because of its versatility, hydroxyapatite is becoming increasingly popular as an implant coating, demonstrating its use as a super clean, pure white coating. The biomedical industry has demonstrated a tremendous level of confidence in APS’ ability when providing hydroxyapatite coatings.

Shorter Recovery, Faster Growth

Hydroxyapatite allows for cementless implants, and it helps promote bone ingrowth. For this reason, it is often used in hip, knee and other implants and as a synthetic bone substitute. Reports imply that HA coatings encourage faster bone fixation, with less pain and shorter recovery time for the patient. Hydroxyapatite is as equally effective as a coating in dental implant applications. Turn to APS for quick production turnaround, competitive pricing, and unparalleled quality.

Better Over Time

The advantages of using hydroxyapatite as a bio implant coating over more traditional materials are not immediately apparent. Time eventually reveals the benefits of HA coatings. Dental and orthopedic implants coated with hydroxyapatite show a higher success rate in overall implant function over time. Hydroxyapatite coatings and titanium coatings have the unique ability to create structural and functional connections with bone. APS works with most of the world’s largest biomedical manufacturers, delivering world-class HA-coated implants to achieve superior results for patients.

TITANIUM COATING

Bonded to Bone

The biomedical industry has long preferred titanium as a coating for joint implant applications because of its superior biocompatibility. The mechanical behavior of titanium allows bone tissue to grow inside the structure, facilitating a long and stable connection between implant and bone.

Better Implants for Patients

The quick osseointegration that titanium provides allows for shorter recovery time and less pain for patients in need of replacement implants. Porous titanium coatings for FDA-approved bone and other replacements allow patients to avoid having more invasive treatments with long term effects, preserving natural performance and range of motion.

Better Implants for Patients

The quick osseointegration that titanium provides allows for shorter recovery time and less pain for patients in need of replacement implants. Porous titanium coatings for FDA-approved vertebral disk replacements allow patients to avoid having their vertebrae fused as a way to combat back pain, preserving range of motion.

Building Trust Throughout the Biomedical industry

Biomedical industry professionals know APS as a trusted provider of titanium coatings for medical implants. Our reputation for providing durable large and small joint coatings medical implant coatings gives our clients confidence on a global scale — seven out of the ten largest medical manufacturers in the world count on APS for their expertise.
