Stainless steel 316L

For the manufacture of all components, ATLANTIC has selected a very high quality stainless steel from the 316L family. The advantages of this steel are its high corrosion resistance and excellent durability. As instance, certain steels used in the medical field for the manufacture of implants also belong to the 316L family.

Titanium

Titanium is a metallic element found in the earth’s crust. Hardened titanium is 30% stronger than steel, and 50% lighter than steel, hypoallergenic because it’s nickel free and 100% recyclable. When exposed to the atmosphere, titanium forms a tenacious oxide film that is resistant to salt water corrosion.

Galvanic coatings

These coatings are applied by electrolysis. By varying the timing and current intensity, it’s possible to vary the thickness and nature of the different layers, as instance gold, red gold,…

PVD (Physical Vapour Deposition) coating

This process is performed under vacuum. Microscopic particles are deposited on the products by ion bombing. Very thin layers of impurity-free components can be made which possess a high level of hardness (nitride, carbides,…)
PVD is resistant to corrosion with a strong adherence; it offers many choices of colours and is hypoallergenic.
