  • Medical Device Link .
    Inc. (Warsaw, IN) and member of the MMD Task Force, says that cobalt-chromium alloys and titanium are popular choices. Cobalt-chromium alloys exhibit corrosion and wear resistance. Titanium, a durable and biocompatible metal, is commonly used in heart valves, pacemakers, artificial hips and joints
  • Medical Device Link .
    Biocompatible Material Has Properties of Both Metals and Polymers As the demand for advanced implantable devices increases, the debate rages on as to which material is optimal for these in vivo applications. Biomaterial provider Invibio (Greenville, SC) has created a composite for implantables
  • Medical Device Link .
    Focus on suppliers of filters All-metal filters and porous-metal products are suitable for medical applications requiring exact flow specifications, biocompatibility, and resistance to high temperatures and aggressive chemicals. (Farmington, CT, USA) has developed porous-metal medical devices
  • Knee bones, thigh bones, Ceramic Implants
    Ceramic materials are good candidates for medical implants thanks to stellar biocompatibility and resistance to wear. Diamondlike carbon coatings provide a biocompatible, sterilization-compatible, nonleaching, and wearresistant surface for key pivot points and wear surfaces. Morgan Advanced
  • Medical Device Link .
    Mass Production of Medical Devices by Metal Injection Molding As the number of biocompatible metals available for injection molding increases, the process is becoming a practical option for manufacturers of implants and surgical instruments. As labor costs for medical manufacturing continue to rise

    , biopsy tools, diagnostic cartridges and small parts needing 3-D geometry in polymer materials and favoring higher volume production due to tooling cost but lower piece price Restricted to metals so parts needing high strength, hard surfaces, or specific biocompatible metals such as mechanisms, implants
  • Medical Device Link .
    . It is not simply a mixture of base metals, " explains Jochen Ulmer from Euroflex (Pforzheim, Germany). "Nitinol 's nickel and titanium atoms are bonded in an atomic lattice. " The alloy 's atomic structure provides chemical stability and high corrosion resistance. Although nitinol is biocompatible
  • Medical Device Link .
    that it is chemically inert and does not react with various bodily fluids. Looking at the projected growth in the market for biocompatible materials, the metals segment is expected to increase from $162,500,000 in 2003 to $212,800,000 by 2008, according to Business Communications Company, Inc
