Titanium Anodizing Equipment for Color Ti Anodize Color Titanium Anodizing Applications Titanium anodizing is widely used in the biomedical / medical device industry. The main benefit of color titanium anodizing is color coding to assist doctors and physicians with identifying differences in size or anatomical shape of surgical implants. Examples of anodizing titanium include: trauma bone fixation plates have different color drill guides to indicate the anatomical difference between left & right plates and bone screws used in spinal fusion surgery are anodized different colors to indicate differences in length. Titanium Oxide Layers The “illusion of color” is the simplest way to explain color titanium anodizing. More specifically, color titanium anodization is a manipulation of the oxide layer on the surface of titanium. An oxide layer naturally forms on the surface of titanium upon exposure to the atmospheric conditions and oxygen reacts with the surface of titanium. This process of oxidation naturally occurs with many elements and the small protective oxide layer helps protect it from further reactions to air or water. When the oxide layer first forms, it is about 1-2 nanometers thick or 10-20 angstroms, but it will continue to grow to 25 nanometers (250 angstroms) thick in open air.
