Our expertise

Titanium Anodization

For titanium medical instruments and implants, we do finishing treatments by an anodizing process. In conformity with the ISO 13485 standards this process enables improvement of the wear and tear and corrosion of the medical instruments and implants. How does the Anodization of titanium work? Titanium Anodizing is a surface treatment process not only to [...]

ASTM A967 Medical Passivation

Our company also does passivation process on request. This process consists in removing a part of the iron layer from the surface of the metal part and so it creates a thin protective oxide barrier. By doing so, this leads to a long-life span of protection against corrosion.  This method is mandatory for all metals [...]
