Coating Services

ACT has extensive in-house coating and testing capabilities including Optical Microscopes, Tribo Meters, Calo Testers, and Fisherscope X-ray systems. Our testing process will confirm the quality and performance of our coating on your medical component. ACT can support your coating needs and provides a variety of coatings and combinations of coatings with over 40 variations. We can provide custom coatings tailored to meet the needs of the medical and dental industry.

Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) is often used for coatings for medical devices, surgical tools, needles, and more. Medical Applications include:

  • Surgical instruments
  • Orthopedic implant applications
  • Pacemakers ( & other Cardiovascular devices/implants)
  • Dental instruments
  • Orthodontic instruments
  • Prosthetic devices for bone/joint implants, etc.

These devices are coated to ensure durability and sterility. When dealing with the human body, safety is ALWAYS our priority. Our team will work with you to solve problems to develop and implement a customized plan that meets your needs. We have scientifically researched vital methods to provide benefits to critical medical components.

ACT has been involved in the development and production of biocompatible PVD, PACVD and ceramic, Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC), and metallic thin film coatings for medical use for more than ten years. We are experienced in the use of multiple coatings for medical devices. We have perfected our coating craft from the beginning to end through the use of our experienced team, dedicated scientist, and extensive state of the art equipment.

The PVD and DLC coatings as well as other coatings are used on a wide variety of medical implants and instruments. The coatings are engineered to withstand sterilization procedures and internal human body conditions. ACT has been involved in the application of the DLC coatings used in the manufacturing of artificial knee joints and coronary artery stents.
