In the use of biocompatible implants, the surface condition often plays a key role, since contact with human cell tissue is decisive for the success or failure of long-term integration. Here Cendres+Métaux can draw on many years of experience in the optimal preparation and structuring of surfaces of various biocompatible materials and their components. Depending on the material and the area of application – for example for the osseointegration of implants – different technologies are used, each of which is perfectly suited to the task.
- Wet chemical etching processes (pickling & etching)
- Anodising of titanium
- Blasting with various media
- Laser marking
- Vibratory grinding, tumbling
- Deburring (mechanical and/or chemical)
