Important applications include:
- Orthopedic implants such as knee joints etc.
- Dental implants
- Surgical instruments such as forceps, scissors etc.
For strong and durable anchoring of orthopedic implants, such as artificial knee joints, surface finish is extremely important. The coatings are applied using vacuum plasma process and are sprayed with a much fissured surface which actively accelerates the growth of the natural bone into the implant, thus making it bio-compatible.
