Medical devices, like syringes, ophthalmic lens, microchips fluidic systems, catheters or implants, make large use of advanced materials that develop key performances and/or functionalized interfaces. It is essential to preserve these characteristics during the entire manufacturing process. That is why appropriate technologies like leading edge surface treatments; are essential the biomedical industry.
Joining, bonding, coating or protecting surfaces are common issues when using new innovative materials. They need clean, soft and reliable technologies rather than aggressive chemicals.Sol-gel and plasma technologies offer simple, efficient and cost effective ways to process advanced materials and enable the manufacturing of medical devices to reach its best performance.
