Morgan Advanced Materials’s Technical Ceramics business announced that it is launching a charge dissipative (CD) coating for ceramic parts to support the development of compact medical equipment.
Reduced size and improved resolution and imaging performance is in high demand for medical diagnostic imaging equipment like CT scanners and mobile X-ray machines. Morgan’s CD coating of ceramic parts allows for optimum performance at higher voltages.
Morgan Advanced Materials is able to supply multiple coated samples with various specific surface resistance (SSR) for manufacturers’s development projects. A development of a measurement system for SSR allows for better consistency and repeatability on ceramic shapes.
The latest range of coatings features a blend of titanium and chromium oxides that help create semi-conducting layers while lowering the emission of secondary electronics.
“Our new capability is designed to support manufacturers to deliver increasingly compact, efficient and patient friendly medical systems. With smaller parts, there is a corresponding need to adjust the blend of CD coatings to maintain the best SSR and charge dissipation performance,” said Joerg-Uwe Wichert, manager of new business at Morgan’s Technical Ceramics business. “That’s why we’ve invested in materials and capacity to ensure that customers will always get the fast track for new products.”
