Hydrophilic Coatings-key coating type for medical coatings

The medical coatings market is segmented into two types: hydrophilic and hydrophobic coatings. These types have application specific demands that are differentiated by cost, and efficiency. These coatings may be used in combinations on medical products as required or individually. Hydrophilic coatings are widely used on medical products such as; guide wires, catheters, and introducer sheaths to lower the friction coefficient. The demand for hydrophilic coatings is high due to properties such as lubricity, durability, low friction coefficient, and low particulate count.
