TYP-II dark anodising –

For optimised surface properties

TYP-II dark anodising is the optimal refinement for significantly improving the biomechanical properties of medical implants made of titanium, for example. Among other results, the sealing produces a stronger surface and increased resistance to abrasion with guaranteed biocompatibility.

Due to the improved material properties attained with TYP-II dark anodising (Standard Aerospace Material Specification AMS 2488), the process is used for a wide range of products, primarily in the field of medical technology but also in industrial applications, in the aerospace and automotive industries and for manufacturing watches, glasses and jewellery.

Product advantages that never fail to impress

Reduced frictional properties
Avoidance of “cold welding”
Optimisation of biocompatibility
Improvement of tribology
Increase of tensile strength

TYP-II dark anodising refines the titanium surface leaving it absolutely even and resilient without affecting the dimensional stability of the titanium part. This considerably increases the tensile strength whilst significantly decreasing the coefficient of friction.

This titanium refinement makes it possible to avoid “cold welding” when using untreated titanium faces and easier to undo screw connections. Another advantage of the refined titanium surface is that it is difficult or even impossible for residues and foreign particles to accumulate on the dark-anodised titanium surface.

Colour-coding with Recolor

Product advantages that never fail to impress

Customised colour-coding
Absolute colour fastness
Non-smearing and abrasion-resistant
Broad spectrum of colours
Diverse design possibilities

The innovative and patented Recolor technique allows additional custom marking of dark-anodised titanium products. The Recolor process makes it possible to apply a broad spectrum of colours to the titanium product in a wide variety of shapes and designs without modifying the physical characteristics of the titanium or the product. The design possibilities are practically infinite, allowing addition of logos, measurements, depth markings, batch numbers, QR codes / bar codes, etc., to the titanium product.

Quality

which is ISO-certified & made in Germany

As far as the development of innovations and production of high-quality technologies is concerned, the state of Baden-Württemberg has been a leading region on an international level for many years already. The administrative district of Tuttlingen has even earned itself the nickname of “world centre of medical technology”. We, too, consider ourselves obliged to uphold this tradition, which is precisely why our company headquarters, where we develop and manufacturer our high-quality products sustainably and dependably, are located here. In the field of process and quality assurance, we are certified in accordance with the EN ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 standards.

Manufacturing process

Quality right from the beginning

In a process optimised by Viktor Hegedüs, the titanium surface to be refined is first cleaned and covered with a special oxide layer. Applied anodes then fuse the applied oxide layer and create a resilient, dark grey protective layer on the titanium product. The patented Recolor process allows further refinement and colour-coding of the dark-anodised titanium product if so desired. The high process reliability and high quality always guarantee exact reproducibility for consistent results even across different production batches.
