Orchid Orthopedic Solutions focuses on both bone on-growth coatings and bone in-growth coatings with expertise in sintered coatings, spherical, asymmetric and porous foam used in on-growth coatings. In-growth coatings are usually done with plasma spray, using titanium hydroxyapatite, or titanium on PEEK (polyethertherketone). This article provides some background on the technologies and discusses the benefits and limitations for each process. Download the white paper to learn more on Orchid's coating technologies.
