Zero PFOA PTFE Coatings Available in Six Colors
HUDSON, Mass.—Precision Coating Company has announced the availability of six PTFE colors, all of which are created with the company's new, fully-validated, and FDA-compliant, Zero PFOA PTFE formula. Colors include blue, black, green, white, yellow, and clear. This color palette represents a wider range of choices than offered by most other medical coaters, according to company representatives. Precision Coating Company also has the ability to custom formulate additional colors to meet any customer's particular needs.
The purposeful use of color on components within the medical device market is significant as colors serve to increase product functionality and precision, promote cleanliness, and perpetuate corporate brand. When color is applied simultaneously with the PTFE coating, medical device OEM's can increase manufacturing efficiency, thus making the component more cost effective, according to company representatives. Prime examples of medical devices currently utilizing colored PTFE include guide wires, mandrels, and hypotubes.
Precision Coating Company's Zero PFOA PTFE coatings have been successful in the field now for nearly a year. Recently, when the medical community expressed concern about adhesion issues of Zero PFOA PTFE, Precision Coating Company pro-actively conducted additional, more rigorous tests of its materials which confirmed proper adhesion with Precision Coating Company's Zero PFOA PTFE formulation even though adhesion was no problem with Precision Coating Company's products.
