Fine Wire Coating Services

Our proprietary technology lets us coat fine wire with a thin, smooth coating of PTFE Natural® Fluoropolymer to achieve optimum release or slip properties. We meet catheter engineers’ lubricity and performance characteristics which help to enable development and the manufacturing process. Coated wire aids in the manufacturing processes and applications include core wires, pull wires, stylets and guidewires.

    Superior medical devices require superior coatings.

    Our proprietary PTFE Natural® coated fine wire offers unmatched benefits.

    low-co-friction

    Low Coefficient of Friction

    PTFE Natural® coatings provide a coefficient of friction generally in the range of 0.05 to 0.20, depending on the load and sliding speed.

    heat-resistance

    HEAT-RESISTANCE

    PTFE Natural® coatings can operate continuously at temperatures up to 550°F and can be used for intermittent service up to 600°F with adequate ventilation.

    non-stick

    Non-Stick

    Very few solid substances will permanently adhere to a PTFE Natural® coating. While tacky materials may show some adhesion, almost all substances release easily.

    chemical-resistance

    CHEMICAL RESISTANCE

    Chemical environments usually do not affect a PTFE Natural® coating. Only molten alkali metals and highly reactive fluorinating agents are known to affect this coating.

    robust-coating

    ROBUST COATING

    The proprietary PTFE Natural® coating process enhances the substrate bonding surface to provide optimum lubricity without flaking or cracking.

    non-wetting

    NON-WETTING

    Since PTFE Natural® finishes are both hydrophobic and oleophobic, cleanup is easier and more thorough.
