Duraglide™ Dry Lubricant
Duraglide™ Dry Lubricant is used on a variety of devices with complex movements including catheters, cutting tools, staplers and hypo tubes. It features a proprietary micro dispersion PTFE technology to lubricate assemblies that slide, pivot or twist eliminating ‘stiction’ and reducing actuation forces up to 25%. Duraglide™ is nonmigrating, fast-drying and leaves a smooth, slippery and uniform coating on any surface. It is hostile to bioburden and is compatible with all commercial sterilization processes. Duraglide™ is ISO 10993 tested and certified for easy validation.
Universal Carrier Fluid
The non-aqueous, nonflammable Universal Carrier Fluid for silicones dissolves and carries medical grade silicone lubricants and deposits them onto medical devices. Dip, brush or spray onto parts. Hostile to bioburden, the carrier fluid quickly evaporates, leaving a thin, uniform film of silicone on the surface of the treated part. The process is fast, safe, easy and delivers excellent coating consistency on treated components. MicroCare Medical can tailor the carrier fluid to better manage materials compatibility, dispensing challenges and coating concentration.
Cleaning and Binder Extraction Fluid
Tergo™ Metal Cleaning Fluid (MCF) is a highly effective precision cleaning fluid for vapor degreasing. It is an aggressive, nonflammable fluid that cleans heavy hydrocarbons, greases, flux residue, waxes and silicone soils. It also serves as an effective 3D/MIM parts debinder prior to sintering. Tergo™ MCF has a broad range of material compatibility, is non-pyrogenic and meets stringent environmental and worker safety regulations. It is a drop-in replacement for traditional solvents like nPB, TCE and PERC.
