Ferro produces bioactive glass used in the medical and dental industries that provides the ability to chemically bond with bone to aid in the repair of bone defects.
Bioactive glasses are mainly used to improve and support the healing process of bone-related defects as a result of traumatic events, tumor removal, congenital pathologies, implant revisions or infections.
Ferro implements manufacturing controls to ensure the highest purity bioactive glass that meets the stringent standards for use in medical products. High purity raw materials and a specialized manufacturing process are used to minimize trace impurities.
Our Research and Development team along with our Applied Technology department work together with our customers to design and manufacture custom bioactive glass formulations based on specific needs.
Our analytical department is excellently equipped and capable of providing the following characterization and testing:
