Permanently Bonded Low Friction PTFE Coatings

At SSG, we apply low friction PTFE coatings that are permanently bonded and add low friction properties that are beneficial to your products. Our coatings are applied using the latest state of art automated equipment. This equipment that we have designed and built gives you the uniformity in diameter per your print requirements from the proximal to the distal end of your products. Add to that our ability to precisely measure coating thickness and other important properties using our state-of-the-art measurement and testing devices.

Low Friction Medical Coatings

When using any of our low friction coatings, you can be confident in knowing your products are in the hands of the most capable, well-trained, and tedious applicators in the industry. Our main priority is to return your products properly coated to meet or exceed your requirements with on time delivery.
