Permanently Bonded Low Friction PTFE Coatings

Wire and cord coatingsHere at SSG, we apply low friction coatings that are permanently bonded and only seek to add properties that are beneficial to your products. When any of our coatings are being added to your products, we guarantee that they will be applied with uniform thickness length to length and part to part.

This guarantee comes from our ability to precisely measure coating thickness and other important properties through the use of our state-of-the-art measurement devices.

Permanently Bonded Medical Low Friction Coatings

Any coating process that occurs in our labs has our stamp of approval as well because SSG designs and builds our own application machinery and testing devices. When using any of our low friction coatings, you can be confident in knowing that your products are in the hands of the most capable, well-trained, and tedious applicators in the industry. Our main priority is to return your products properly coated and in better condition than when we received them.
