Low-Friction Cutting Edge
Lubricated edges simply cut easier than non-lubricated edges. FluoroBond®-N/N-2 is a micron-thin, thermally bonded film of fluoropolymers that exhibits a tenacious bond to smooth cutting surfaces such as scalpels and blades. The bonded film has very low surface energy, which reduces cutting force by providing an ultra-low friction coated surface. This coating creates a surface that is permanently non-stick and is bonded to metal and several plastic surfaces. In addition, many medical device surfaces such as wires, guidewires, tubular products, probes and needles can be successfully coated. With this technology, cuts are made smoother, faster, and with less friction.
