Wear-resistant and antimicrobial coatings for ceramics

<< back

The strategy of LONGLIFE to develop new ceramic implants for life is based on four pillars:

1. new zirconia-based materials with a high degree of reliability and stability in vivo,

2. new surfaces without compromising mechanical properties and stability,

3. combined, “multi-physics” tests to assess the implants’ reliability,

4. computer-assisted, ceramic-oriented design.

NTTF Coatings is leading the work package on new surfaces and has developed amorphous carbon coatings on zirconia ceramics that

The Project

The LONGLIFE consortium is constituted of twelve European partners: five SMEs, two large companies, four research groups from academia and one research organization, all experts in the field of ceramics or implants. LONGLIFE receives funding from the European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under the grant agreement number 280741.
