Components operating in the human body experience high levels of load and experience potentially high wear situations. In order to withstand this environment biomedical components require coatings with exceptional hardness, low friction and bio-inertness.

Amorphous diamond coatings exhibit these properties and additionally prevent the leaching of metallic ions into the body.

The characteristics of Adm amorphous diamond coatings notably their exceptional hardness combined with their excellent adherence to titanium based alloys and high grade stainless steel make them ideal candidates for use in medical applications.

The potential applications for the material include; ball joints, knee joints, hip joints, artificial heart valves, blood pumps stents and dies for contact lenses.
