Polyzen Coating Can Enhance Sensor Performance

Find more content on: Components

Using a proprietary automated dip-and-spray coating process that maintains tight tolerances on wall thickness and other product specifications, a company can enhance the performance of medical devices such as stents, guidewires, sensors, wire cages, scope tubing, films, and balloons. The company manufactures specialty and disposable components that have polymer-based thin-layer functional coatings in which antimicrobial additives, hydrophilic additives, or drugs can be suspended. It also offers components that encapsulate a device or component either internally, externally, or point-
specifically. The polymeric coatings, which are applied via molding or coating in a layer ranging in thickness from 1–5 mil, may increase lubricity, decrease tackiness, or alter surface energy to promote ink adhesion, facilitate surface cleaning, or support other types of surface modifications.
