Hydrophilic and Hydrophobic Coatings for Medical Applications

Posted by Josh Simon on Wed, Aug 24, 2011 @ 03:04

Along with a colleague of mine from Specialty Coating Systems, I will be hosting a webinar discussing both hydrophilic and hydrophobic coatings.  It would be my pleasure for all interested readers to register and come hear the talk.  There will be an opportunity to ask questions afterward.

The webinar will cover:

  • Hydrophobic vs. hydrophilic coatings, and examples of applications that may benefit from one of these coatings.

  • HYDAK® hydrophilic coatings for medical devices are lubricious, abrasion resistant, non-thombogenic, and biocompatible. Suitable for coating vascular catheters, guide wires and other medical devices, they can be applied to a wide range of polymeric and metallic substrates.  Learn which applications are most suitable for hydrophilic coatings.

  • Parylene conformal coatings are ultra-thin and biocompatible, and offer excellent moisture, chemical and dielectric barrier protection to a wide range of medical devices and components. Parylene coatings also improve the lubricity of components and reduce surface tack.
