FluoroBond® N/N2 is a micron-thin, thermally bonded film of fluoropolymers that exhibits a tenacious bond to smooth cutting surfaces such as scalpels and blades. The bonded film has very low surface energy, which reduces cutting force by providing an ultra-low friction coated surface.
- Low-Friction Cutting Edge
- Lubricated edges simply cut easier than non-lubricated edges.
- FluoroBond® N/N2 creates a surface that is permanently non-stick and is bonded to metal substrate
- In addition, many medical device surfaces such as wires, guidewires, tubular products, probes and needles can be successfully coated with this technology, cuts are made smoother, faster, and with less friction.
- Key Features of FluoroBond® N/N2
FluoroBond® coatings can be used to coat miniature precision parts and even electrosurgical blades because of the high temperature. FluoroBond® N/N2 can be used on surgical blades or cutting devices to reduce the frictional properties of the cutting surface.
