Spi-Polymer

Reduced Friction, Enhanced Biocompatibility

Spi-Polymer utilizes low temperature ion beam bombardment, enhancing properties of polymeric devices without adding any material to the surface. The process can significantly reduce friction of medical grade silicones, polyurethanes, and other polymeric materials, and can also reduce biological reactivity.
