E-Pro™ is an advanced metallurgical solution offering superior kink resistance over traditional ‘304 stainless steel’, improving navigation through tortuous anatomies. In thin walled tube applications, E-Pro’s high kink resistance allows for larger internal diameters thus delivering reduced deflation times and improved product performance.


High performance PTFE enhanced coating material is applied using state-of-the-art Cambus Coat proprietary application technology. Cured on the substrate it forms a lubricious and non-stick matrix, ideal for guidewires and hypotube-based devices.


PTFE-free coating material for guidewires and hypotube-based catheters. It is applied using our state-of-the-art proprietary application technology – Cambus Coat.  Rho-Coat provides an ultra smooth coating with high lubricity for easy insertion and removal of the wire or catheter with a finish similar in performance to a polymer jacket.
