Lubricious Coating Uniformity & Adhesion

In catheter manufacturing, plasma strengthens the balloon-catheter bond and improves the uniformity and adhesion of hydrophilic and lubricious coatings to various catheters. Additionally, plasma deposition techniques are employed to directly deposit coatings that provide enhanced biocompatibility or allow direct coupling of bioactive agents to improve the catheters in-vivo performance.
