The company installed newly developed PVD/PACVD coating equipment and processes that will support large-scale production of Medthin™ 01 TiN for orthopaedic implants. Medthin 01 TiN is designed to address wear in implants by reducing metal-ion release. Medthin 01 TiN generation II provides smoother coatings and higher-volume coating potential.

IHI Ionbond is also investing in new cleaning facilities in its remodeled, ISO 13485 Certified coating center in Rockaway, New Jersey.
