Lubricious Coating - HydroSleek2 Information

Posted by Josh Simon on Wed, Jun 06, 2012 @ 10:45

I would like to draw your attention to a new video available that details a new lubricious coating called Hydrosleek2.  To access the video click on the button below, and enjoy.

Within the presentation, you will find information on coefficient of friction and processing of the coating, both before and after sterilization and aging.  In previous posts I have talked about the importance of this sort of data:  a company displaying friction data must qualify whether the data is for aged and/or sterilized coating or virgin coating.  They must also talk about the nature of the testing that was performed on the coating to obtain the friction data, especially for durability.  Recall a study we did on the effects of pinch testing parameters on hydrophilic coatings
