All coatings meet CLASS VI biocompatibility testing to include Cytoxicity, Intracutaneous Irritation, Acute Systemic Toxicity and Allergic Sensibilization. Regulatory information is contained in drug Master File 1499 shared between Dow Corning and TUA Systems of Florida, Inc.
We offer a hydrophilic lubricious coating that helps improve patient comfort when applied to medical devices like catheters, guidewires and other short-term implanted devices.
Hydrophilic coatings participate in dynamic hydrogen bonding with surrounding water. In most cases, hydrophilic coatings are also ionic and usually negatively charged, which further facilitates aqueous interactions.
