On-X carbon is a pure form of isotropic pyrolytic carbon utilizing patented processes. It does not require silicon alloying to ensure wear resistance found in most other available forms of pyrolytic carbon.
It is a structural carbon coating that is most often deposited on a high density, high purity graphite pre-form although other substrate pre-forms can be used.
Components of solid On-X carbon can be produced.
Thickness of the deposited carbon depends on the design requirements of the product.
The surface can be polished to a high gloss where articulation or thromboresistance is required.
Alternatively, the surface can also be left in an as deposited state providing some surface topography for bone and or tissue on-growth.
