Biocoat Releases New Advanced Lubricious Coating - HydroSleek
, maker of lubricious HYDAK® hydrophilic coatings
, the newest member of the HYDAK product line at the MDM West show in Anaheim, California, February 8 - 10.
HYDAK® HydroSleek coatings are based on a high molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid (HA). This technology has applications among a range of fields including ophthalmology, urology, cardiology, endoscopy, and neurovascular. HydroSleek coatings have overcome the trade off between lubricity and durability seen in cross-linked coatings. Additionally, HydroSleek involves a heat-cure process so both ID and OD may be coated without the concerns surrounding UV curing.
This new product will act as Biocoat's front line solution to medical device firms seeking to reduce surface friction for their devices. HydroSleek possesses the same beneficial characteristics of the family of HYDAK® coatings, plus advancements device manufacturers have requested.
