Dayton, OH ( freepressbox ) September 14, 2012 - Since 1975, APS Materials has been a complete resource for Thermal Spray technology for a large number industries. Since the 1980's, APS has been developing and providing materials coating that the biomedical industry relies upon for joint replacement therapy. APS developed the spray coating process that revolutionized orthopedic implants. Until this process was developed, the biomedical industry had no way of manufacturing a durable, seamless implant.
Over the past thirty years, APS has developed a process that utilizes spray coater technology, such as Plasma spray technology, to provide a materials coating that actually increases the durability and strength of orthopedic implants. Using commercially pure titanium (CP Ti) and hydroxyapatite (HA) from APS, seven out of ten of the largest medical manufactures in the world are able to produce implants that promote osseo-integration between implant and bone.
When one looks at the advantages of using CP Ti or HA as a spray coating on bio implants, it comes as no surprise that seven out of the top ten medical manufacturers are depending on APS for the production of quality
products. HA and CP Ti materials coating are used in dental implants, joint replacement and other orthopedic applications. HA in particular has been cited as promoting bone in-growth and many reports seem to suggest that implants coated in HA provide a less painful, swifter recovery for patients. The use of HA and CP Ti coatings reduce corrosion and increase overall life of the implant, providing a higher quality of life for the patients receiving them.
