Medical/Pharmaceutical Hydrophilic Coatings

Product Release Europe is working with some of the newest coating techniques within the application of surface coatings for the medical device industry. We offer a full and extensive menu of advance coatings technologies and coated products to the medical device industry, produced according to GMP Rules.

We work closely with our customers to find the optimal solution both on properties but also on how the product will present itself visually. For those with special coating needs Product Release has developed a department that can meet the standards for quality and purity that is often required by the medical industry.

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.
