Medical instrumentation

In this field, ceramics are sought for their properties that enable them to meet the following specific requirements:

  • High level of hardness
  • Resistance to wear (friction, scratching, durability)
  • Compression
  • Electrical strength
  • Resistivity
  • Low thermal expansion
  • Thermal insulation
  • Chemical inertia/resistance to chemical corrosion
  • Biocompatibility.

Applications / Constraints

The field of medical instrumentation is a major user of advanced ceramics for a wide variety of applications, such as:

  • Electrical insulators and wear parts for surgical tools
  • Electrical insulators for lasers, X-Ray tubes, particle accelerators, etc.
  • Electrical insulators and mechanical components for medical imaging, medical equipment, gas or fluid analysers, etc.
  • Surgical microcomponents, for pacemakers/defibrillators
  • Stators, cylinders, pistons, valve components, etc.
