Medical Equipment and Devices
Consolidated Coating Company provides medical equipment and device coating services for manufacturers. The most popular coatings for medical devices include products with PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene), a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene, which has numerous applications. The best-known brand of PTFE is Teflon discovered by DuPont in 1938. Used as a non-stick coating, it is very non-reactive, partly because of the strength of the carbon-fluorine bonds. Frequently employed as a coating on catheters, this interferes with the ability of bacteria and other infectious agents wanting to adhere to catheters and cause hospital acquired infections.
Medical device applications present their own unique set of rigid conditions primarily due to safety requirements, and medical devices themselves, which come in varying shapes and sizes, present their own distinct challenges for specialized coatings. CCC understands and prepares for the consequential complexities of varying medical equipment and device coatings, keeping precautionary measures in sanitary and biocompatibility considerations in complete check.
