NuSil Technology Releases a Low Coefficient of Friction Silicone Coating for Healthcare Applications

MED-6670 silicone coating cures with heat to significantly reduce inherent surface tack.

Carpinteria, Calif. (Vocus) February 2, 2010 -- NuSil Technology LLC (, a leading formulator and manufacturer of silicone compounds for the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, announces the release of MED-6670, a curable coating that decreases the coefficient of friction of a cured silicone surface by a minimum of 50 percent when compared to a non-coated silicone surface.

NuSil designed MED-6670 to overcome obstacles in applications in which silicones come in contact with each other, such as precision molded parts, molded rubber stoppers or O-rings. Silicone elastomers inherently have a high degree of surface tack and a tendency for blocking (sticking to themselves by virtue of chemical affinity), which may cause problems in applications in which they come in contact with each other or other surfaces.

MED-6670 is a two-part, low-coefficient of friction silicone coating dispersed in xylene. A thin coat of MED-6670 cures rapidly with elevated temperatures. Once cured, the coating chemically bonds to the silicone elastomer substrate, mimicking its mechanical properties. The result is a smooth finish with durable, yet flexible coating that resists abrasion from moving, sliding and rubbing parts.

“By bonding to the substrate and resisting abrasion, the MED-6670 coating eliminates the concern of migration, which commonly associated with lubricants such as fluids or greases,” said Brian Nash, vice president of sales and marketing. MED-6670 is designated unrestricted and safe for use in human implantation of 29 days or longer. Master Access File and biological testing are currently on file with the U.S. FDA.
