Specialty Powder Blending Equipment

At ASB Industries, we have developed a range of medical coatings, using both thermal and cold spray technologies. Medical coatings produced by thermal spray provide dielectric insulation for medical devices and instruments. Our coatings offer numerous advantages and benefits, including:

Process Advantages

  • Low oxide coatings
  • Inter-connected porosity
  • Inert or controlled bioactivity
  • Engineered bond strengths
  • Rapid bone growth and accelerated healing
  • Biocompatability
  • Porous, bio-active coating enables biomedical engineers to design implants that are greater suited to interact with bone tissue

Benefits

Because we’ve spent years researching and developing coatings for medical applications, we are confident that we can create a solution that meets your specifications.

What Can Medical Coatings Do?

When applied to medical equipment, coatings can perform a number of functions. Using electrically dielectric aluminum oxide materials, our medical coatings can be used to provide EMI/RFI shielding to protect sensitive equipment from interference. They can also be used to repair framework and other structural components that may be difficult or expensive to replace.

Spray coatings research can potentially be applied to medical implants as a way to help the human body accept the implant and to promote bone growth. Specialized materials such as hydroxyapatite (HAP), porous titanium, and calcium carbonate are ideal for medical coatings intended for this application. Spray coating processes are capable of meeting the unique specifications and tight tolerances that are required for medical implants and automated systems can be used to ensure proper repeatability.
