Coatings

A wide variety of coatings can be added to the surface of a complex medical balloon to enhance or change its properties to meet new requirements, including:

  • Lubricious coatings (hydrophilic and hydrophobic)
  • Abrasion- and puncture-resistant coatings
  • Tacky or high-friction coatings
  • Conductive coatings
  • Antithrombogenic coatings
  • Drug-release coatings
  • Reflective coatings
  • Selective coatings
