Advanced Ceramics with Enhanced Performance for Medical Equipment APPLICATIONS

 

Due to the uniquely customizable material properties, technical ceramic materials are ideal for producing components designed for medical devices and equipment. CoorsTek CeraPure™ high-purity ceramics are designed to work well in numerous medical applications requiring high-strength, resistance to thermal shock, biocompatibility, high-temperature electrical resistivity, and superior chemical resistance. Learn more about the benefits of the technical ceramics below. 

FLUID MANAGEMENT

Complex and reliable fluid handling systems are needed to measure, monitor, and control fluids.  Technical ceramics’ components are used in many medical fluid management applications including dialysis, blood management, and handling of maintenance and replacement fluids due to the bioinert material, corrosion resistance, thermal stability, and wear resistance.
