AMC is one of the leading coating applicators of electrosurgical blades in North America
AMC is ISO Certified 13485:2016
PFA (perfluoroalkoxy) fluoropolymer coatings surpass PTFE in release and non-wetting properties but are not quite as good as FEP.
PFA’s have excellent nonstick and good low-friction properties, and are stable in the presence of a wide range of chemicals & environments. They are known for their glass-like, nonporous finish and ability to operate up to 260°C (500°F).
PFA coatings provide high dielectric strength and offer a greater level of flexibility that PTFE and FEP coatings. The translucent coating offers toughness with the ability to apply at higher film thicknesses when required.
Key performance properties of PFA medical coatings:
- FDA approved
- Excellent dielectric strength
- Low coefficient of friction
- Tough & durable
- Outstanding chemical resistance
- Operating temperature up to 500°F
