Evaluating Lubricious Coatings Performance

The role of lubricious coatings, which provide a slippery external surface to a medical or dental device, is critical to reduce tissue damage and to decrease the risk of inflammation, thrombosis, and friction upon the insertion of the device into the body. In almost all applications, these coatings will be hydrophilic, which means they are […]

How Low-friction Coatings Can Be Used

Low-friction coating is critical on medical instruments, surgical devices, and tools including catheters and guide wires. Friction impedes the insertion process, causing a number of preventative problems like infection, pain, and discomfort and potentially even leading to malpractice suits. Except in specific situations in which a slippery insertion is undesirable, as when extreme control is […]
