Coating Technology S.r.l. has a relevant experience in surface treatments and coatings, and can supply ideal solutions to the medical and pharmaceutical field, where products are destined mainly to the sectors of prothesis and medical tools.
The essential property of a coating destined to the medical prothesis field – as in the food industry - should be the biocompatibility, controlled by the UNI EN ISO 10993 regulation that guarantees its suitability for use, thanks to its ceramic – and not cytotoxic – nature. These coatings do not bring about problems of rejection, allergenic or coagulation troubles and do not react to aggressive chemical components. For this purpose, Coating Technology S.r.l. relies on the most important lubricants suppliers, whose PTFE coatings are certified for the pharmaceutical and food fields.
It is certainly necessary for a coating that are destined to medical or pharmaceutical fields to have certain properties, such as biocompatibility, bacteriostatic features, resistance to wear and cut, in addition to following all the relevant legal provisions: Coating Technology S.r.l. performs every every coating treatment satisfying any request and optimising the production process, in full compliance with the current European and international regulations.
Although this is a recently implemented discipline, the application of surface coating treatments in the medical sector is reporting very positive data both in terms of increased performance efficiency and reduction of prosthesis rejection and intolerance.
