Katahdin to Display Medical Device Coating Solutions at BIOMEDevice Boston Show

Katahdin Industries’ subsidiaries, Sanford Process and Precision Coating, will display their products for medical device producers at the BIOMEDevice Boston show to be conducted from 6 to 7 April 2011.

Comparison between traditional aluminum anodizing and MICRALOX coating

Pioneer in ultra-tolerance PTFE coatings for medical devices, Precision Coating will introduce a PTFE coating called PC 20-405 that exhibits high adhesion and lubrication properties. The coating does not contain perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), a surfactant used in the production of raw PTFE dispersions to enhance the coating performance. However, it is being phased out from manufacturing applications. The PC 20-405 coating, without PFOA, offers better coating performance.

Aluminum anodizing technology specialist, Sanford Process will introduce an aluminum oxide coating called MICRALOX. The patent-pending coating features microcrystalline barrier to enhance the performance of medical accessories, including handles, cassettes, trays and orthopedic cases. MICRALOX provides durable, permanent surface that offers high corrosion resistance to chemicals and eradicates color loss due to highly heated steam cleaning.

MICRALOX coating is an ideal replacement to plastic, stainless steel and other materials that demonstrate better stability in chemicals but are costly and complex in terms of low thermal conductivity.

At the show, comparison between traditional aluminum anodizing and MICRALOX coating will be presented. Sanford Process and Precision Coating are certified to supply materials for Class 1 and 2 medical device producers.
