Exceptional biocompatibility of products destined for the biomedical sector thanks to the certified guarantee of neutral behaviour in the body of items with oxide coating.


Elimination of seizing issues typical of titanium alloys. Precision masking can be used in each process according to individual requirements.

Process of colour anodising

The conventional colour of titanium by anodic oxidation is achieved by immersing the item to be oxidised into an electrolyte solution and connecting it to the positive pole of a current generator. The exchange of current between metal and the solution results in the item being covered with a coloured oxide film, with the thickness varying from 200 to 900 nm in TYPE III oxidation.

Alticolor closely follows oxidation method specifications to achieve bright, intense colours.
It must be emphasised that the colours that appear on the surface of the titanium with anodic oxidation are not due to the presence of pigments, but rather the phenomenon of interference.

Treatment carried out in accordance with standards AMS 2488, DIN LN 9368-4 and DIN LN 9368-7

More than 20 colors
