Superhydrophilicity

INICELL®: Evolution in surface technology

By slightly changing the surface chemistry, it is possible to increase surface energy. When surface energy increases, a superhydrophilic surface is created and wettability is improved. Thereby, a hydrophobic surface is changed into a superhydrophilic surface (INICELL®).






These properties of INICELL® promote spontaneous and complete wetting of the implant with physiological fluids, particularly blood.
