Medical Coatings


Since 1982, Thermech Engineering has applied PTFE coatings to the ID of narrow tubes—as narrow as 0.007” (0.178 mm). We specialize in ID coatings and are the only company capable of coating such narrow hypotubes. We originally developed this technology to coat in vitro diagnostic probes. Since then, Thermech has become a market leader in narrow-diameter ID coatings. We help IVD manufacturers develop needles and probes that are coated on the ID to minimize carryover. We also help medical device manufacturers develop microcatheters that are coated on the ID with biocompatible PTFE for use in endovascular surgery.

ID-Coated Tubes for Endovascular Surgery


Compared to extruded PTFE liners, coating the ID of microcatheters is a less labor-intensive and more cost-effective method of increasing lubricity.

ID-Coated Tubes for IVD


Thermech can help you prevent carryover by applying hydrophobic nonstick Teflon® coatings to the inside diameter of hypotubes used for in vitro diagnostics (IVD).  ID-coated needles and probes provide an inert fluid path with Teflon® FEP wetted surfaces.
