Ceramed is a Portuguese corporation, which started its activity as an independent company in 2005, after 4 years of incubation under the umbrella of CATiM (the R & D unit of the Portuguese metal machining cluster).
Our main coating unit (located in Lisbon) offers a wide range of coating technologies for medical implants and instruments, such as Plasma spraying, PVD and Anodization.
Ceramed is ISO 13485: 2003 certified since 2004 by DNV.
Besides the coating technologies, we offer innovative and self-developed biomaterials and medical devices for wound dressing, hemostatic, hydrogel, bone grafts for dental and orthopedic applications, bone cements and injectable bone substitutes.
All of these activities were agglutinated in a new company named Altakitin - this spin-off occurred at the end of 2010.
It's Altakitin who currently produces ForCoat, the HAp power used by Ceramed.
In 2010 Ceramed created a new company for machining in Spain, ALTAMEDICA with a local partner with 25 years of experience in Medical Machining in order to offer fully integrated outsourcing solutions for orthopedics OEM's.
Altamedica is certified under ISO 13485: 2003 by SGS.
