Powder Coatings Using Medical-Grade Materials
Every piece of medical equipment has a unique set of demands. All medical equipment must be sterile, biocompatible and nonporous to discourage the growth of bacteria, but depending on the procedure, you may also require equipment that is exceedingly resistant to corrosion or inhibits electrical conductivity. Advanced Coating Technology applies powder coatings that are highly corrosion-resistant and won't convey electric currents. In addition to their use in medical instruments, powder coatings are also useful for protecting furniture and devices used in the medical setting.
Medical-Grade Powder Coatings for Dental Equipment
As dental equipment becomes increasingly sophisticated, it demands a powder coating that can withstand frequent use. Advanced Coating Technology applies powder coatings for metals including aluminum, brass, copper, steel and stainless steel. The protective powder coating on your dental equipment will allow it to withstand frequent decontamination without the risk of corrosion to keep it ready for everyday use.
Benefits of Powder Coating for Medical and Dental Equipment
While powder coating still makes up only a small sliver of the medical-grade coating market, it's becoming increasingly trusted for the most demanding and complicated equipment. Medical-grade powder coatings are applied using electrostatic spray and are then cured in a high-temperature oven to produce a coating composed of long molecular chains. The high cross-link density of these molecular chains makes medical-grade powder coating incredibly stable and resistant to breakdown.
Powder coating is preferable in the medical industry because its naturally antimicrobial qualities promote a sterile and hygienic environment. This characteristic makes it ideal for every area of medical facilities, from hospital beds and wheelchairs to the interiors of surgical suites. Powder coating combats bacteria, mildew, mold, parasites and viruses in medical settings and has become increasingly essential to the medical field.
