Rho-Coat™ is a PTFE-free coating material for hypotube-based catheters. It is applied using our state-of-the-art proprietary application technology – Cambus Coat™, an environmentally friendly coating technique.
Rho-Coat™ provides an ultra-smooth coating for optimum lubricity and easy insertion and removal of the catheter, hypotube or wire.
Rho-Coat™ produces products with a finish similar in performance to a polymer jacket.
Rho-Coat™ can be applied to hypotubes in the creation of coated catheter shafts deployed in cardiovascular and neurovascular applications.
- High lubricity
- Conformal coating
- Excellent adhesion
- Tight tolerances
- PTFE & PFOA-free
Passes stringent biocompatibility testing in accordance with ISO standard 10993-1 for short-term contact of less than 24 hours with human body:
