Medi-Solve Coatings Develops Masking Process for Medical Devices
Date:6/26/2012

Natick, MA (PRWEB) June 26, 2012

Medi-Solve Coatings, a leading manufacturer of very lubricious, hydrophilic coatings for the medical device industry, has developed a unique way to mask a medical device during the coating process. Catheters and guidewires are typically coated at the end of the device manufacturing process. Sometimes, only a portion of the device requires a highly lubricious coating. For example, on a stent delivery catheter, the distal tip and catheter shaft would have a hydrophilic coating to help the catheter track. “On the balloon portion where the stent is crimped on, a slippery coating would be detrimental.” According to Ron Sahatjian, Chief Technology Officer for Medi-Solve.

Medi-Solve’s novel masking material and process enables manufacturers to preferentially coat finished devices. With this unique material, the coating can be applied while the balloon is in its final, folded state. This offers process flexibility while saving time and money.
