Substrates We Coat


At Biocoat, our HYDAK coatings offer best-in-class performance in lubricity, durability, and particulates. Our coatings give you a choice to cure the coatings using either Thermal heat or Ultraviolet (UV) light. The following charts show the results of a series of tests that the Biocoat Research & Development team completed to test the friction, durability, and particulates on commercially available microcatheters to see how our coatings perform compared to other coatings on the market.


PTCA Balloon Dilatation Catheter Family of Products


To successfully complete the project design, the developing company’s engineering team required a high-performing hydrophilic coating and to implement production techniques to match the high volume and high-efficiency production requirements during the introduction of a family of balloon catheters.

THE challenge:

Biocoat was asked to develop a coating that would perform on each catheter being planned for the product portfolio. Each catheter had different coating requirements, including different coating lengths, lubricity requirements, masking and performance standards. One particularly challenging area was the development of a solution and process to mask the balloons on the catheters so that the coating did not interfere with the performance of the balloon.


Biocoat worked closely with the engineering team on each project to develop a coating to maximize the overall device performance. Biocoat also designed and assisted with developing production techniques that would allow for large volumes of product to be coated efficiently and effectively. Each product has been US-FDA approved and is available in several countries including the United States, Middle East, the Asia-Pacific region, Australia, Latin America, and Africa.

“I believe their hydrophilic coating solution for catheters is one of the best, if not the best, solution on the market.”

Dedicated Support Throughout Your Project Development

A major portion of Biocoat’’s success has been offering a high-touch customer service experience. Our coating experts are ready to assist you with the development of a coating specifically designed to match your project’s requirements.

Project Review
This initial review is to determine if there is a fit between your project’s unique specifications and our HYDAK coatings. If both parties agree on moving forward, we will start the feasibility testing process.
Feasibility Testing
During the feasibility testing process, we ask for approximately ten samples for us to perform a high-level coating test. Once the coating is complete, we test the sample material for lubricity and durability and then perform a dye test to ensure the coating adhered as expected. In conjunction with the testing performance results, we send some coated materials for you to test at your own facility.
Coating Development & Optimization
Collaboration is vital during this stage, as we are working together to develop the coating that best matches your device. Planning for validation, regulatory submission, and for large-scale coating application can be completed at our Contract Coating Services unit or fulfillment at your production facility
