AMC is one of the leading coating applicators of electrosurgical blades in North America

AMC is ISO Certified 13485:2003

FEP (fluorinated ethylene propylene) typically provides the best nonstick and non-wetting characteristics of

the three primary fluoropolymers (PTFE, FEP & PFA).  FEP fluoropolymers are less porous because of better melt/flow characteristics, resulting in denser coatings that provide superior release.  Besides its nonstick/release superiority FEP coatings provide robust low-friction properties as well as more resistance to corrosives than PTFE coatings.  The combination of its performance properties and process capabilities make FEP coatings the preferred product for release applications.

FEP coatings offer a range of properties and benefits extremely suitable for medical devices & equipment such as:

  • Biocompatibility
  • Superior nonstick- release 
  • Very low coefficient of friction
  • Color options to meet marketing conditions
  • Adhesion to most substrates including stainless steel 
  • Heat resistance – can operate continuously up 400°F
  • Non-porous
  • Excellent corrosion and chemical resistance
  • High strength dielectrical properties
