PTFE Coated Wire FluoroWire®
Low-Friction For Wires
Wound guide wire, made of corrosion resistant stainless steel and Nitinol have naturally high friction. FluoroWire® coatings are bonded to finished devices or continuous reel-to-reel lengths of wire and small diameter tubing. FluoroWire® greatly reduces intravascular friction in devices such as catheters, stents, etc.
Our sister company, Surface Solutions Group is a leader in applying PTFE on medical wire, with both non-acid and non-PFOA formulations, in a number of colors. SSG coats wire in discreet lengths for medical devices, including guidewires and mandrels. We also coat guidewires in all stages of assembly, from the outer guidewire alone, without the taper mandrel and safety wire to a complete guide wire with the internal wires welded in place.
Any type of wire can be given a low-friction surface.
