In the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, it is important for the manufacturing and packaging process to be free from dust, dirt, debris, and other types of contamination. This also includes biological contaminants such as viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi. At Secoa Metal Finishing, we offer safe and durable nylon medical device coatings that businesses in the medical and pharmaceutical technology industries utilize in the medical devices they manufacture.
Nylon-based coatings, including Rislan™ Nylon 11, has a smooth appearance, is easy to clean, and resists wear and tear effectively. It is a high-performance coating that is able to endure harsh conditions of cleaning and sterilization. These types of coatings are popular for chemical resistance and are ideal for medical industry applications. The use of nylon coating as a medical instrument coating ensures the optimal function of medical equipment, even after multiple cycles of sterilization and/or washing.
Electrical conductivity is also a consideration when selecting a medical grade powder coating. Nylon coatings on surgical instruments – for example electrosurgical forceps – provides important insulation against the conductivity of radio frequency current, inhibiting its travel through the instrument, which could increase the burn risk of non-targeted tissue in a medical procedure.
At Secoa Metal Finishing, we operate the largest powder coating process oven in the Southeastern United States.
