As one of the oldest and largest technical ceramics manufacturers in North America, CoorsTek leads the market with innovative materials and applications. Our CeraPure™ medical-grade technical ceramics were designed specifically to meet the stringent demands of medical device applications requiring thermal-shock resistance, high strength, USP Class VI compliance, superior chemical resistance, and high-temperature electrical resistivity.
High-purity medical device ceramics
CoorsTek designs, develops and manufactures its own high-purity ceramic materials. We offer several ceramic materials certified for biocompatibility (USP Class VI). Let our experts help you select the best material solution for your medical device application.
Alumina for medical devices
We provide a wide range of alumina that can be used to construct medical devices. The range includes:
- AD-998 (nominally 99.8% Al2O3)
- AD-995 (nominally 99.5% Al2O3)
- AHP-99 (nominally 99% Al2O3, porous)
- FG-995 (nominally 98.5% Al2O3)
- AD-96 (nominally 96% Al2O3)
- AD-94 (nominally 94% Al2O3)
- AD-85 (nominally 85% Al2O3)
Zirconia for medical devices
CoorsTek continuously develops new materials for specialized applications. Our latest material offering for use in medical devices is Dura-Z™ zirconia, which features a class-leading endurance limit.
We provide several types of zirconia: Y2O3 partially stabilized zirconia (YTZP), MgO partially stabilized zirconia (TTZ), toughened alumina ZTA (ZTA) and Dura-Z™ zirconia.
