Medical parts from Ceramic Materials
Product Announcement from Insaco, Inc.
Ceramics offer unique properties that can dramatically improve performance of critical parts in application. Alumina ceramic is extremely hard and wear resistant even at extreme temperatures and harsh conditions. It is therefore ideally also suited for fixtures and tooling. Silicon carbide, which is an even harder ceramic, can be produced with thermal conductivity higher than that of copper.
Zirconias have been approved for implantation. See the Designer's Guide on their website for an overview, or contact Insaco sales engineering to discuss feasibility of your design concept.
