Ti-Med 2 – VALIDATED Type II Titanium Anodizing for the Medical Industry
TYPE II Titanium Anodizing

The Electrolizing Corporation of Ohio also performs TYPE II titanium anodizing in accordance with the SAE AMS 2488 standard. Although originally developed in the aerospace industry, TYPE 2 titanium anodizing also has many benefits for the medical industry for both devices and implants. The advantages of the TYPE II anodic treatment in comparison to the conventional finish include increased lubricity, fatigue strength, and it is an excellent anti-galling coating. These characteristics lead to significant improvement in implant performance and durability. TYPE II ti anodizing penetrates the titanium rather than build up at the surface, resulting in no dimensional changes after processing.

ISO 10993 Testing
Our Type 2 Titanium Anodizing process has been tested by our customers on implant devices they manufacture that must meet ISO 10993 standards. Since we do not manufacture devices, it is up to each individual customer to independently test their device/coating option to comply with ISO 10993.
