Development of biocompatible materials

Biomaterials are materials implanted or incorporated into a live system in order to restore or substitute damaged tissue. The world market for biomaterials is estimated to exceed US$ 40 million, with an annual growth rate of 12%.

IPT designs and develops biomaterials, such as ZrO2 and Al2O3-ZrO2-based ceramic materials for dental applications, in partnership with schools of dentistry at public universities and with private companies. Each case is studied individually and the development may include confidentiality clauses.
