MED-6671: LOW COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION SILICONE COATING FOR HEALTHCARE APPLICATIONS
Carpinteria, California — NuSil Technology LLC, a global leader in silicone materials for the healthcare, pharmaceutical and drug delivery industries, announces the release of MED-6671, a room temperature curable coating that significantly decreases the coefficient of friction of cured silicone surfaces. Silicone elastomers inherently have a tendency for blocking (sticking to themselves by virtue of chemical affinity). Once cured, MED-6671 chemically bonds to the silicone elastomer substrate, mimicking its mechanical properties and covering this surface tack. The result is a smooth finish with a durable, yet flexible coating that resists abrasion from moving, sliding and rubbing parts.
