Profile: APS Materials, Inc. provides a complete resource for thermal spray technology to industry. We provide thermal spray solutions for a wide range of needs in surface modification. Our processes can apply and manipulate materials to feature specific surface qualities, such as bio-active/bio-inert, dielectric, semi-conducting & thermo-insulating. Materials can be processed in powder, wire & rod form, and can include ceramics, metals & cermets. We produce both porous and bioactive coatings for the orthopedic market place. Our medical device coatings consist of commercial pure (CP) titanium and its alloys, specifically titanium- 6% aluminum- 4% vanadium (Ti-6Al-4V), as well as hydroxyapatite, a calcium phosphate material that is used as a synthetic bone substitute. Our titanium coatings provide the orthopedic marketplace with one of the most widely used porous, or roughed, surface used. The advantages of this coating lie not only in its physical properties, but also in mechanical properties related to device design and functionality. The unique physical and mechanical properties of these coatings are the highlights of a unique thermal spray process that is used to coat these implants. Plasma spray technology enables the biomedical engineer to design an implant that provides the highest achievable mechanical properties while also providing a bio-inert, as well as bio-active, surface to interface with bone tissue.
