PTFE Wire

The Surface Solutions Group, LLC consists of a teams of professionals, such as chemists, engineers, technicians and business executives who have relied on their education and experience to develop an organization that is involved predominantly in the developmental and applications of PTFE wire and other coatings used in the medical industry. Surface Solutions Groups has received their ISO 2001:2001 accreditation, and they have recently constructed a brand new eco-friendly manufacturing plant, which has vastly reduced the carbon footprint of the operations. Furthermore, the air in that manufacturing plant, which is used to create the PTFE wire, along with other coatings is of the highest quality and is free from oil. In fact, class 10,000 and 1,000 clean room environments make up this high-tech and "green" manufacturing plant.

PTFE wire and thread is used in a variety of medical applications. PTFE wire is used in the manufacture of heart stents and vascular graft and due to the fact that PTFE wire has a natural lubricant and is very resilient, the PTFE wire allows for ease of handling and is able to retain the shape that it has been manipulated. Furthermore, the PTFE wire is used for stitches and statures and because the PTFE wire is soft and easy to handle, it allows the doctor to quickly and easily insert the stitches and again the flexibility and strength of the PTFE wire allows the statures to remain in place. PTFE wire is clean, safe and durable and owing to this fact, it is successfully used in countless medical applications, within medical laboratories, surgical environments, for imaging as well as within various other key components within the field of medicine. In general, the characteristics of PTFE include a high resistance to chemical, wear and tear and scratches, and the PTFE wire is able to endure changes in temperatures from -270°C to 260°C. Although the PTFE wire is a natural white color, Surface Solutions Groups has developed various grades and compounds of PTFE wire, which can be used to suit a selection of applications.

As a medical coating developer and creator, PTFE wire is only one of the products that are manufactured, and in addition, customers are able to make their selection from titanium wire and tubing, 304 V tubing, national wire and tubing, Visi Mark® Permanent Marking and Banding Technology, a range of precision and miniature devices, such as soft tissues devices, probes, cannulas coated with optional Visi Mark®, Endoscopic blades and devices, such as all lengths of straight blades, balls, hooks, loops as well as catheters.
