HYDLC Thin & Ultra thin Films  
DLC coated Stent and Teflon graft


Multi
Coats
deposited Diamond Like Carbon thin films on several different substrates, such as :

** SS-316 LMV,
** Teflon,
** Ceramics,
** Semiconductor materials for infrared optics (Si, GaAs, Ge, ZnSe as well.).

Cardiovascular Implants (stents) made of SS-316 and NiTiNol have been coated by thin film ta-C and a-C types of DLC .

Ultra Hydrophobic Teflon / ta-C DLC


Further development of the technology resulted in obtaining Ultra Hydrophobic hybrid material - polymer (teflon) - DLC, coated as Thin and Ultra Thin Films on metal substrate - SS 316 LVM Stent.

The quality of the deposited films and the properties of the new material have been examined accordingly.

 

 
HYDLC Thin & Ultra thin Films on polymeric goffered Textile Substrate    

MultiCoats. performed deposition of nano films of DLC and Ultra Hydrophobic biocompatible hybrid material on gofer textile substrate, to be used as cardiovascular implant. The actual state of the textile surface is shown at microscopic photo picture to the left.

 
 
MDLC Metal nano particles incorporated within DLC matrix    

Metal nanoparticles of Silver and Platinum have been incorporated within DLC matrix coatings on cardiovascular stents.
Researchers published info that "...DLC-silver and DLC-platinum composite films reveals ... self-assemble into particulate nano composite structures that possess a high fraction of sp3-hybridized carbon atoms. DLC-silver-platinum films demonstrated exceptional antimicrobial properties ."

TROST Polymer P-312 Coatings    

New application Depositing thin and ultra thin films of polymer P-312 (our designation), from the family of phosphonats on ceramic and metal substrates, besides known properties, such as biocompatibility and biodegradability a strongly manifested photoluminescence has been observed.
The polymer has mol.w. 12,500 Dalton.
These biodegradable polyphosphoesters are appealing for biological and pharmaceutical applications because of their biocompatibility and similarity to bio-macromolecules such as nucleic acids.
Intensive research and development of P-312 potential and properties is in progress.

 
 
DEPST Polymer D-712 Coatings    

MultiCoats has started testing ultra thin PET polymeric films on standard testing substrates, for heavy metal detection sensor device.
The Polymer D 712 (our designation name) and some of it's generations have shown properties usable for highly sensitive sensor made in form of Thin and Ultra Thin films..
Looking for cooperation and partnership within FP7 of EU.

 
 
NOVIST Biopolymer P-329 Coatings    

MultiCoats has started depositions of biocompatible and biodegradable nano coats, based on P-329 natural biopolymer Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) and its co-polymers, on DLC coated cardiovascular Stent, The polymer is to be charged by one or more drugs as drug carrier or as drug's cover-up thin film within drug(s) eluting matrix.
P-329 nano films might be coated (sandwich) by ultra thin layer of biodegradable and biocompatible metal alloy M-014 as mechanical protector.

 
 
PLGAST RG 503 H Poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) thin film deposition    

MultiCoats performing controllable deposition of complex biopolymers and organic materials. Deposition on PLGA rezomer RG 503 H synthetic biodegradable and biocompatible biopolymer in nano coats. Material is applied in pharmaceutics and DEStent manufacturing. Multi-layered films are deposited without any risk of harming deposited material properties onto any surface. Biopolymer bone structure analysis of these films have been quantified using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) for comparisons to native materials.

MBST Human protein MB (Mioglobin) Coated Thin Films    

MultiCoats has done controllable deposition of complex biopolymer material known as Mioglobin - protein with mol. w. 17400 Dalton. The material is used in pharmaceutics. Thin films have been coated without risk of damaging agent's properties onto many substrates. Myoglobin thin films have been subject to structural analysis and quantified using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) for comparisons to native materials.
