A range of Diamonex® diamond-like carbon (DLC) biocompatible coatings is now available that can be used for medical implants, including left ventricular assist device (LVAD) heart pumps and artificial joints. The coatings reportedly offer excellent adhesion and wear resistance and can extended component life.

The range of optimized DLC coatings reportedly provides a super-hard, low-friction coating with properties approaching those of natural diamond. Applied to both LVAD housing and rotor elements, the coatings can provide a medical barrier and wear-resistant coating that lengthens the life of the device. In addition, the low coefficient of friction (0.03-0.25) also increases the mechanical efficiency by minimizing friction at startup and during operation. According to the company, the coatings can provide excellent adhesion and wear-resistant protection for both artificial hip and knee replacements.
