Miller-Stephenson’s specialty medical wire coatings offer world-class quality, value, and reliability to the medical industry. Today’s constantly evolving medical industry continues to raise the performance requirements of friction-reducing coatings and Miller-Stephenson has responded delivering novel, Next-Generation Fluoropolymer Coatings to its customers. With over 40 years of innovation and development in medical coatings, Miller-Stephenson have the technical prowess and operational capacity to deliver the highest of quality products and customer service to its medical customers.

Miller-Stephenson offers the most advanced, forward-looking fluoropolymer medical wire coatings to meet your needs. Our coatings come available in water-based, one coat systems which contain no dangerous acid primers, yet delivery the same exception surface adhesion and durability. Our Medical division continues to provide our customers with the highest quality products and service they have come to expect.  To read more about our medical coatings please look at the article section of our website.

Miller-Stephenson offers a low-temperature variant of their next generation, acid-primer free (Non-Cr(VI)) Medical Coating for coating of temperature sensitives substrates like Nickel-Titanium Alloys, Polyamide, etc.  These Nitinol Wire Coatings are water-based, one coat systems providing the same robust and durable fluoropolymer coating in a lower cure temperature system.  Achieving the same performance standards as our 850G-90XX and 850G-102X, this product was designed for the new generation of low temperature metal alloys and/or high temperature plastics.

  • Ideal for Temperature sensitive alloys
  • High Durability, Flexibility and Corrosion resistance
  • Unmatched Surface Adhesion
  • Waterbased, One-coat formulation

Our next generation waterbased, Non-Cr(VI) Fluoropolymer coating, designed to optimize coating adhesion, durability, and corrosion resistance while minimizing coefficient of friction. Our world-class fluoropolymer chemistry delivers unmatched lubricity and adhesion on all medical guide wires in the ease a one-coat system and a safe non-Cr(VI) system.  In practice, medical personnel will feel smooth, low-friction movement as the guidewire progresses through the vasculature. Benefits Include:

  • High Durability, Flexibility and Corrosion resistance
  • Unmatched Surface Adhesion
  • Elimination of Delamination
  • Waterbased, One-coat formulation
  • No Cr(VI); non-acid primer
  • Passes all ISO and ASTM guidelines*

Miller-Stephenson Medical in unison with Chemours™ has developed a series of water-based, medical coatings which offer Next-Generation Performance, Surface Adhesion, Durability, and Superior surface smoothness all while eliminating the use of chromium-VI. Our world-class next generation fluoropolymer chemistry delivers unmatched lubricity and adhesion on all medical guide wires and devices.  The 850G-104X not only provides our smoothest surface finish but does so with an average film thickness of only 6-12 microns.  In practice, medical personnel will feel smooth, ultra low-friction movement as the guidewire progresses through the vasculature. Benefits Include:

  • High Durability, Flexibility and Corrosion resistance
  • Ultra-smooth surface finish and very low coefficient of friction
  • Unmatched Surface Adhesion
  • Substantial safer than Cr(VI) / Acid Primer systems
  • Stable to all forms of sterilization
  • Passes all ISO and ASTM guidelines*

Consider the "Gold Standard" for Water-based, Acid Primer PTFE Medical Coatings, our 850G-90XX represents over 40 years of research, development, and refinement yielding a coating which has no recorded instances of delamination or performance defects. Our PTFE Medical coatings utilize a proprietary, acid primer system allowing for an extremely low coefficient of friction, high durability and surface adhesion in an efficient One-Coat System. Utilization of a water-based system provides a non-flammable and low VOC formula.  Benefits include:

  • Water-based; One-coat
  • Non-flammable; Low VOC
  • High surface adhesion and durability
  • No Delamination
  • Passes all ASTM and ISO regulations
  • Lot-to-lot Consistency
