Boyd Coatings Research Co., Inc. has announced the availability of six PTFE colors – all of which are created with the company’s new, fully-validated and FDA-compliant, Zero PFOA PTFE formula. Colors include blue, black, green, white, yellow and clear. This color palette represents a wider range of choices than offered by most other medical coaters. And, in addition to the standard six colors mentioned, Boyd Coatings has the ability to custom formulate additional colors to meet any customer’s particular needs.
The purposeful use of color on components within the medical device market is significant as colors serve to increase product functionality and precision, promote cleanliness, and perpetuate corporate brand. When color is applied simultaneously with the PTFE coating, medical device OEM’s can increase manufacturing efficiency, thus making the component more cost effective. Prime examples of medical devices currently utilizing colored PTFE include guidewires, mandrels and hypotubes.
Boyd Coatings’ Zero PFOA PTFE coatings have been successful in the field now for nearly a year. Recently, when the medical community expressed concern about adhesion issues of Zero PFOA PTFE, the company, again pro-actively, conducted additional, more rigorous tests of its materials which passed easily, as expected. These more severe tests confirmed proper adhesion with Boyd’s Zero PFOA PTFE formulation even though adhesion was no problem with Boyd Coatings’ products.
Boyd Coatings Research Co., Inc. manufactures and applies custom-developed, high performance coatings, specializing in the medical, industrial and aerospace markets. The company is ISO 9001 registered and a licensed applicator of DuPont Teflon®, Whitford® fluoropolymers, 3M and other popular coatings providing non-stick, heat resistant, conductive, insulative, hydrophobic and other desirable properties. Lean and flexible manufacturing capabilities allow the company to process both high-volume and small quantities quickly and cost-effectively.
