Surface Solutions Group (SSG), an automated applicator of coating technologies for the medical device industry, announced that it will be exhibiting its FluoroBond-PT process and other coating solutions in Booth #1832 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing Conference & Expo (MD&M) in Minneapolis on September 21 to 22, 2016.
MD&M Expo attendees are invited to meet with SSG’s team and learn more about FluoroBond-PT, a revolutionary process that solves PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) adhesion problems of PFOA-free (Perfluorooctanoic Acid) coatings in the medical device industry.
“The medical device industry has been experiencing PFOA-free PTFE delamination, primarily on stainless steel guide wires and similar products. The PFOA-free coatings are sensitive to saline, which degrades the hydrophobicity of PTFE, making them vulnerable to electro/chemical attack,” said George Osterhout, president of SSG. “FluoroBond-PT solves those problems.”
FluoroBond-PT is a unique environmentally friendly treatment process developed by SSG for stainless steel, nitinol and other metals that solves the PTFE coating delamination issues experienced in catheterization labs, operating rooms and doctor’s offices.
SSG’s FluoroBond-PT is used to hyper clean the substrate and remove free iron and iron oxides from the surface of the substrate, without removing material or changing the dimension of the substrate’s surface.
