The Metal Spray process is used with Prosthetics, Dental Implants and many more applications. The Metal/Thermal spray coatings improve wear resistance, provide EMI/RFI shielding, boost bio-compatibility and add other beneficial features to biomedical devices, components and implants.
Specialised materials can help the human body accept and attach to medical implant prosthetics, such as orthopaedic or dental implants. Metal/Thermal spray coatings such as porous Titanium and dense Hydroxyapatite are commonly used for these applications.
