Miller-Stephenson’s specialty medical chemicals offer exceptional quality, value, reliability and ultra pure chemical solutions to the medical industry. Today’s constantly evolving medical industry continues to raise the performance requirements of medical lubricants, friction-reducing coatings, high purity solvents, and polymer additives.

Miller-Stephenson offers the most advanced, forward-looking medical chemical solutions to meet your needs. We offer high-performance lubricants, fluoropolymer wire coatings, compounding additives, ultra high purity solvents, and dental lubricants. Our products are designed specifically to meet all current and future regulations, and are 100% biocompatible (ISO 10993), non-nutrient, and nonflammable. Miller-Stephenson continues to provide our customers with the highest quality products and service they have come to expect.

Miller-Stephenson Medical offers the same cutting edge performance chemicals and quality technical service our customers have expected us to deliver since 1955. To read more about our medical chemicals please look at the article section of our website. Our fluoropolymer medical guidewire coatings and dental handpiece lubricants are specific examples of the high performance and novel new products brought to the medical industry from Miller-Stephenson.

FluoroExtreme™ is a fluorinated synthetic lubricant specially designed for dental handpieces. This lubricant offers superior protection, lubricity, and chemical stability versus standard hydrocarbon based dental lubricants. FluoroExtreme™ minimizes mechanical wear in all low and high speed handpieces, allowing devices to run longer and quieter  while reducing costly repair intervals.

  • Minimizes mechanical wear
  • Reduction in debris formation
  • Quieter operation
  • Extends service life of critical components
  • Biocompatible (ISO 10993)

Miller-Stephenson's Fluoropolymer coatings are 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 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
  • Stable to all forms of sterilization
  • Passes all ISO and ASTM guidelines*

When we introduced nonflammable Miller-Stephenson Skin Degreaser, we knew it was an innovation in pre-surgical cleaners. It also degreases catheter, biopsy and colostomy sites.  It improves adhesion of EKG electrodes. Prevents smudging of surgical pen markings in plastic and vascular surgery.

ShieldSys is a family of PFPE (perfluoropolyether) based polymer additives designed for the needs of the medical industry. Our specialized chemistry facilitate migration of the PFPE to the exterior surfaces of the molded product, providing substantial reduction marring, abrasion, tackiness while increasing processibility and final product throughput. Benefits Include:

  • Continuous bloom to the surface
  • Minimizes wear and abrasion
  • Eliminates plate out and die build up
  • Increased Chemical resistance
  • Inert to other polymers and chemicals

Miller-Stephenson's SolvSys product line are ultra high purity solvents specifically designed for precise cleaning of today's sensitive medical devices. SolvSys can be used in the most critical cleaning application such as medical oxygen service parts, where lesser solvent may leave behind residues that will hinder its operation. Our specialty solvent exhibit high cleaning coefficients (KB value), low surface tension, high surface wetting values; critical attributes for cleaning solvents. Benefits include:

  • High Cleaning Coefficient and Surface Wetting Indexes
  • Nonvolatile residue and particulate free
  • Non-flammable
  • Fully Compatible with Metallic and Non-metallic surfaces
  • Easily Recycled and Reclaimed

TriboSys PFPE (perfluoropolyether) oils and greases provide superior quality lubrication under the most challenging medical application in comparison to hydrocarbon and silicone alternatives. TriboSys was designed to decrease wear and extend service intervals on all medical devices. Medical device engineers will value the dramatic decrease in mechanical wear, unwanted noise, and broad temperature range our lubricants impart.  All variants of TriboSys are unaffected by all forms of sterilization and will not transfer or degrade under these conditions. Benefits include:

  • Superior Lubrication over conventional alternatives
  • Biocompatible (ISO 10993)
  • Chemically Inert; Non-nutrient
  • Non-Flammable; Oxygen-safe
  • Odorless and Non-Staining
