PTFE Coated Wire FluoroWire®
Surface Solutions Group is a leader in applying industrial, FDA compliant, biocompatible PTFE coatings on medical wire and guidewires, with both non-acid and non-PFOA formulations, in several colors. SSG’s FluoroWire® coating can be applied to reel-to-reel continuous length wires, cable and tubing.
Low Friction Medical FluoroWire® Guidewire Applications
Uncoated mandrel wound guidewires, made of stainless steel and Nitinol have naturally high friction. FluoroWire® coatings that are bonded to a continuous reel-to-reel length of wire and small diameter tubing greatly reduces intravascular friction in devices such as catheters, stents, etc.
Any type of wire can be given a low-friction surface. All formulations are PFOA-free.
Coatings Can be Applied To:
- Stainless steel
- Silver plated copper wire
- Tungsten and other specialty wire
- Small diameter twisted and braided wire cables
