Many surgeries today are conducted using coated medical endoscopic blades, forceps, and devices with handles requiring non-stick, electrical insulation and other properties. Whitford Xylan® coatings, PEEK® coatings, KYNAR® coatings, HALAR® coatings, Nylon coatings and many other Teflon® PTFE medical grade, biocompatible thin film coatings provide these properties. After the coating application, Orion has the test procedures and instruments to verify 100% compliance of the applied coating specifications whether for prototypes, short run volume or high volume coating applications.
Orion Industries is a leader in applying biocompatible PTFE on medical wire, with non-acid and non-PFOA formulations, in a number of colors. We coat wire in discreet lengths for medical devices and also mandrels. In-house tooling provides precise coating of semi-finished or finished guidewires in lengths from 80 to 680mm lengths. We also coat guidewires in all stages of assembly, from the outer guidewire alone, without the taper mandrel and safety wire to a complete guidewire with the internal wires welded in place. Guidewire diameters of .010", to .038" in both round wire and flat wire and special sizes are coated weekly. . Having state-of-the-art automated electrostatic coating lines; we excel at high volume work and provide our customers with repeatability from part to part assuring a uniform and micron accurate Teflon® PTFE coated guidewire .
Reel-to-reel PTFE coated wire is done automatically at Orion. With a special in-line pretreatment, Orion applies a coating with optimal adhesion and superior coating uniformity. We can coat round sizes ranging from 0.003" to 0.040" in diameter and flat/rectangular wire plus PTFE coat Silver-plated Copper wire too.
Tubular devices are coated in both discreet lengths and continuous reel-to-reel lengths with our entire biocompatible, medical grade Teflon® PTFE coatings.
VisiMark technology provides contrasting color markings on PTFE coated medical devices for depth marking, placement guidance, on both solid and tubular devices. Special masking, Radiopaque markings and VisiMark are available on all guidewires and medical devices.
Orion can make any coating Anti Microbial upon request.
