While coating tools is mostly intended to extend service life, medical instruments are usually coated to give them certain positive properties for use in operations. Whether it's different colors to make it easier to tell instruments apart for different purposes, or coatings that protect them from the harsh chemicals of sterilization.
With PVD coating units from PLATIT, medical instrument coatings meet all requirements and thus help to treat patients all over the world more quickly and efficiently.
Our TiN, DLC, ZrN, TiCN, CrN and AlTiN coatings meet all requirements of international health organizations. Meanwhile, they are also tested for biocompatibility and certified accordingly by NAMSA by passing the MTS cytotoxicity (ISO10993-5) and intracutaneous reactivity (ISO10993-10) tests.
The medical suitability has been proven through several certificates, in which these properties are tested and proven:

As with all aspects of medicine, the testing and documentation standards for medical instruments are very high. This is matched by the fact that PLATIT’s process control software supports precise documentation, process control and batch-by-batch traceability of coating processes. The connection to an ERP system also allows this documentation to be passed on to healthcare databases.
All PLATIT units are also suitable for certifications according to ISO.
