LDK STH Tantalum Coated Femoral Stem is the first domestic tantalum metal coated biologically fixed femoral stem with an exclusive patented innovative tantalum coating technology, which provides an excellent tantalum metal coating interface. The product’s coating and molding technology has successfully broken through the international traditional vapor deposition technology barrier and overcome the tantalum metal’s high technical difficulty of physical forming and spraying method, which has higher biosafety. The surface coating has been modified and designed to be rougher and more stable initially. The flat wedge shape design can fully retain bone volume, which is conducive to the growth of bone tissue into the tantalum porous structure and guarantees long-term stability.

The birth of LDK STH tantalum-coated femoral stem marks China’s orthopedic instrument technology research and development into the international first-class level, breaking the monopoly of foreign enterprises in the field of tantalum metal prosthesis.

China Material Science Innovation Tantalum Product Strategic Cooperation Signing

As a new type of coating material, tantalum metal has obvious advantages in mechanical properties, physicochemical properties and biocompatibility. Professor Zhao Dewei from Zhongshan Hospital of Dalian University signed a strategic cooperation agreement with LDK for innovative tantalum products in China’s material science.
