Medical/Pharmaceutical Hydrophilic Coatings

Hydrophilic coating is a unique surface enhancement technology that uses the body’s own fluids to dramatically reduce frictional forces by more than 90%.
The key advantage of the Hydrophilic coating technology from PRE is 
the non-reactive hydrophilic/hydrophobic polymer matrix, 
which is optimized so that better lubricity, flexibility and hydration performance characteristics is achieved.
