Solutions for Medical Device Coating

Using temperature and viscosity control to deliver reliable results
for the medical device coating industry.

Silicone Coating Solutions

Inconsistent silicone coating of syringe needles and catheters can lead to irritation of patients’ skin or subcutaneous tissue. With viscosity control measures, medical device manufacturers can ensure that their products receive even and adequate levels of silicone coating to provide greater patient comfort while reducing waste and rejections.

Benefits of viscosity control:

 

  • Consistent silicone coating of each syringe or catheter to prevent patient skin or subcutaneous tissue irritation
  • A proper ratio of silicone coating to solvent to ensure solvent evaporation
  • Increased coating mileage for more needles and catheters coated per volume used
  • Less solvent needed via automatic addition, which leads to less inconsistency and more uniform dosing
  • Fewer rejections of under-coated needles or catheters

Applications served:

Our temperature and viscosity management solutions offer control from the beginning of your process all the way to the point of application. These solutions help medical device manufacturers apply consistent and reliable coatings to their products.
