NTTF, located close to Bonn, Germany, is specialised in plasma coatings for medical devices and other high-tech coatings. With low pressure plasma the self cleaning cardient® TiX coating is created.
Cardient® TiX is a super-crystalline titanium oxide which iremains photo-catalytic for several hours when exposed to UV light, leading to decoupling of hydrogen and break down of organic bonds. The released hydrogen kills bacteria and germs - the surface becomes germ free. If the coating is additionally made hydrophilic it is also very easy to clean.
The released hydrogen radicals attack bacteria and germs - the surface becomes germfree. When cardient® TiX is additionally adjusted to be hydrophilic, the surface is cleaned with water easily.
cardient® TiX surfaces are:
Application areas include diagnostic surfaces, optical devices and bone implants.
