After an extensive period without face-to-face events, Plasmatreat USA is looking forward to appearing, at the next MD&M West Exhibition in Anaheim, California. This trade show will take place from August 10-12 and will cover a wide range of topics, including medical device components to medical packaging. Located in booth #4455, the company will show different solutions and application examples used for surface pretreatment of medical devices.
Catheter components are an example of why reliable, long-lasting surface treatments are necessary. These critical components rely on reliable welding, sealing and bonding processes. Plasma pretreatment can activate the surface of materials like polymers to increase the surface energy. With higher surface energy, bonding provides better results between the surface, adhesive & medical devices. Drug coated devices also benefit from the plasma pre-treatment. Using PlasmaPlus®, a nano-coating can be applied to the surface that enhances the drug elution profile and uniformity.
Surface pretreatment with plasma technology has more advantages in terms of cost efficiency, sustainability and flexibility.
