Coating on Peek

The basis for the development of a PS coating family (Spondycoat®) for PEEK-based components

Eurocoating's long-time experience in treating metallic implants with Air Plasma Spray and Vacuum Plasma Spray technologies was used as the basis for the development of a PS coating family (Spondycoat®) for PEEK-based components.

Features and benefits

Coatings available in titanium and hydroxyapatite

  • highly adherent
  • enhances osseointegration

Examples of application

Plain Peek:

  • Spinal cages
  • vertebral body replacements
  • Carbon-fiber reinforced peek
  • Spinal cages
  • femoral stems
  • acetabular caps
  • fixation screw and plates

Spondycoat-T 367A

High roughness Titanium on CRF-PEEK substrate

Coatings developed fulfil ASTM and ISO requirements; plasma spray processes may affect PEEK’s substrate properties: a comprehensive data set has been collected and is now available at Eurocoating. It may help device designers in choosing the best variety of PEEK-type coating pairing.
