PTFE Natural® Coated Fine Wire

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.

We are committed to delivering high quality components, held to tight tolerances and that meet our customer’s lubricious and robust coating performance needs.

Standard tolerances +/- .0003”  to +/- .0005” pending substrate starting diameters. Consult with us to discuss tighter tolerance requirements.

Superior medical devices require superior coatings.

Our proprietary PTFE Natural® coated mandrels offer 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.
