Resistant coating on Al alloys

Nanocrystalline oxide ceramic layer formed on Aluminium Alloys is characterised by:

Controlled thickness: 2 - 100 ┬Ám

High microhardness: 1000-1800 Hv

High corrosion resistance: upto 1000 hours salt spray, alloy dependant

High adhesion to Al substrate: > 300 MPa

Low friction coefficient pared with steel in standard lubricated environment: 0.04-0.08

Dimensional accuracy: Ceramic layer grows predominantly inside the substrate and practically does not change the dimensions of the object. Can be applied to complex shapes.

Enables to prevent galling of light alloy components

Continuous operating temperature: > 500 C

Fully Inorganic construction

Thermal conductivity: 7 W/mK

Dielectric strength: 50 KV/mm

Dielectric constant: around 10

Biocompatible coating for Ti implants:

Thickness 5-20 microns, controllable

Excellent adhesion to metal base

Highly developed surface, submicron pore size, controllable topography

High Hardness: 300-400 Hv

Exceptional surface wettability

Surface is capable of carrying medication or HA

Creates a barrier between metal and tissue

Can be applied to 3D printed Ti implants

Natural white colour on all Ti alloys, including Grade 5 Ti-6Al-4V
