Solve Complex Adhesion Problems in Medical Device Manufacturing

There is nothing more critical than a person’s health and safety. Medical device applications are on the front lines of preserving and improving human life. So, when manufacturers talk about requiring high-reliability in their cleanliness, bonds and coatings, they truly mean it. We help manufacturers validate every step of the adhesion process to give manufacturers total control and assurance of success and to prove surface verification of treatments in order to get FDA approval.

Common Medical Devices Applications

  • Validate uniform coatings on catheters and implantable devices
  • Verify treatment such as ultrasonic cleaning and plasma is uniform and effective
  • Ensure surface chemical cleanliness of stainless, aluminum, titanium, and polymer materials prior to adhesion
  • Prevent surface over-treatment of catheters and luers prior to bonding
  • Identify the presence of silicone that can inhibit bonding
  • Calibrate media blasting on carbon fiber or titanium for use in prosthetics
  • Audit medical supply storage for negative effects on coatings as a result of prolonged shelf-life
