Orion’s Life-Saving Application for Low Friction Bonded Coatings: Emergency Auto-Injectors

Orion applies low friction, corrosion resistant bonded coatings to springs used in devices that prevent life-threatening asthma attacks and emergency anaphylaxis. This life-saving device is often stored in homes, schools, hospitals, and workplaces for long periods of time until it is needed to provide life-saving care. Our FluoroBond® family of low friction bonded coatings lower the friction of the middle support seal, spring, and the vial sleeve, providing a consistent and reliable function, even after long periods in storage.
