Surface Solutions Group to Introduce Sustainable, Compliant GlideMedtm Medical Device Coating at MD&M Minneapolis

ISO 13485 certified Surface Solutions Group, LLC (SSG), a leading provider of coating technologies for the medical device industry, today announced that it will be showcasing its GlideMedtm sustainable, compliant coating and its 12 other coating solutions in Booth #3226 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing Conference & Expo (MD&M) in Minneapolis on October 10-11, 2023.

MD&M attendees are invited to meet with SSG's team and learn more about GlideMedtm, a water-based, low friction coating for medical devices. Available in No PTFE and Low PTFE formulations, it is free from PFOS, PFOA, solvent and hexavalent chromium. Developed using established, proven coating technology, it is biocompatible, environmentally friendly, and REACH and RoHS compliant.

Certain chemicals have come under increased scrutiny by the US Environmental Protection Agency and EU Medical Device Regulation. "This is a significant change for medical device companies and their design engineers who are increasingly seeking functional coatings that meet or exceed regulatory requirements," said Kevin Hess, president of SSG. "The response to GlideMedtm from major OEM device manufacturers and their tier one suppliers has been quite positive."

Sustainable GlideMedtm coatings provide excellent adhesion and permanently bonded, low friction properties that are a good alternative to traditional PTFE coatings. Available in a variety of colors, it can be applied to multiple wire configurations, lengths and types, including nitinol, stainless steel alloys, and titanium, and medical devices such as needles, guidewires, coils, cables, mandrels, hypotubes, and continuous wire.
