[ FOR LIFE ]

N2 Biomedical’s proprietary Ion Implantation Surface Treatment and IBAD Nano-Engineered Coating technologies transform the surfaces of medical implants and devices to Last Longer, Fight Infection, Improve Biocompatibility and have Durable Aesthetics.

IonGuard® Ion Implantation Surface Treatments and IBAD NanoCeramic Coatings improve the performance and longevity of medical implants. Our technologies reduce wear and fretting, increase surface hardness, reduce surface friction and improve lubricity.

IonGuard® increases surface hardness & reduces wear and fretting

IonGlide reduces surface friction and improves lubricity

N2 Biomedical’s proprietary silver-based antimicrobial coatings and nano-engineered ion implanted surfaces fight infections and prevent biofilm formation. These processes have been used for over twenty years to fight infection on the surface of a number of medical devices, such as vascular grafts, orthopedic implants, fixation devices, dental implants, and catheters.

IonGlide prevents biofilm formation on polymeric devices

IBAD NanoSilver Coating prevents bacteria growth

Our highly adherent IBAD coatings are engineered on a nano- and mesoscale to promote osteoblast proliferation and support enhanced bone tissue integration to medical and dental implants. Our IBAD NanoTitanium Coating process deposits a thin layer of titanium onto the surface and engineers the desired nanoscale surface morphology. Our patented Mesoporous TiO2 coating creates surface structures smaller than 50 nanometers which emerging research shows further improves osseointegrative properties of orthopedic devices, soft tissue fixation screws, and dental implants.

NanoTitanium coating improves biocompatibility on PEEK devices

Our patented Mesoporous TiO2 coating process is engineered to enhance the osseo-integrative properties of implants

N2 Biomedical’s new ceramic-based color coatings are deposited using a proprietary high vacuum process that provides durable aesthetics on virtually any reflective surface for medical or dental device and instrument applications.

Spectrum NanoCoating is highly adherent, providing durable product differentiation

Spectrum NanoCoating reduces friction, biocompatible product aesthetics

A Track Record of Success

N2 Biomedical has made millions of medical device implants safer and last longer. We pride ourselves on our spotless track record, the creativity of our engineering team and the speed to market afforded customers by our 30 years of experience and compilation of FDA Master File submissions available for reference.
