Fulfilling expectations

Porous, rough and plasma

Biovac performs various types of coating of medical prostheses. Coatings are well-organized according to the applied technique (porous coating or plasma spray); either by the materials that make up said coating (Chrome/Cobalt, Titanium, Hydroxyapatite or the latter two together in a double layer).

These are the types of prosthesis coating applied:

  • Porous coating with microspheres, porous coating (Ti, Co-Cr).
  • Porous coating with irregular particles, porous coating (Ti, Co-Cr).
  • Rough coating Titanium (Ti, plasma spray coating).
  • Hydroxyapatite coating (HA, plasma spray coating o porous coating).
  • Recubrimiento de plasma de doble capa (HA, and/or on Ti plasma spray coating or porous coating).

Porous coating

Microspheres or irregular particles

Plasma spray

Titanium, Hydroxyapatite or both
Porous coating microspheres

Sintered microspheres

The sintered coating of microspheres or irregular particles provides a porous network. Through its interstices, the bones will grow to provide a safe and long-term biological fixation of the implant.

The results obtained confirm its advantages for better bone fixation in all types of surgical implants, with the best pore size and porosity.

Irregular particles

“Porough” is a prosthetic coating that differs from the usual Ti or Co-Cr due to its unique properties of extremely high porosity and roughness, further facilitating bone growth and osseointegration.

To have adequate osseointegration, a very porous structure with well-defined pores is required. “Porough” is the ideal coating for fast, high-quality osseointegration

Plasma coating surface

Plasma coating

With this method, the implanted endoprostheses do not require a foundation and are an ideal rough surface to create a firm bond between the bone tissues and the implant.

The titanium coating of prostheses provides a rough, porous surface. Once the surfaces have been treated, it allows bone growth in the voids of the coating, providing a firm fixation between the implant and the tissues; pressure is reduced at the bone-implant junction
