Biocoat, Inc., has introduced HydroSleek, the newest member of the Hydak product line. Hydak HydroSleek coatings are based on a high molecular weight hyaluronic acid (HA). This technology has applications among a range of fields including ophthalmology, urology, cardiology, endoscopy and neurovascular. HydroSleek coatings have overcome the trade off between lubricity and durability seen in cross-linked coatings, the company said. Additionally, HydroSleek involves a heat-cure process so both ID and OD may be coated without the concerns surrounding UV curing. This new product will act as Biocoat’s front line solution to medical device firms seeking to reduce surface friction for their devices.
