MicroCare Medical is the world leader in the critical cleaning, coating and lubricating of medical devices. Most of these answers involve the deployment of high-performance, nonflammable, non-aqueous cleaning fluids and lubricants. These can be tailored by combining with other ingredients to achieve the client’s operational goals.
These engineered fluids are hostile to pyrogens, which simplifies cleaning and sterilizing and minimizes any bioburden. Other applications include acting as a carrier agent for medical-grade lubricants. These fluids also can be used to swell silicone or polyurethane tubing, which speeds device assembly and lowers production costs.
Check out these products and the ways they will simplify your production processes:
PTFE Dry Film Lubricants
The Duraglide™ PTFE dry film lubricants speed the assembly of medical devices. A thin layer of dry PTFE lubes improve the functionality of many devices by reducing friction between moving parts. Typical applications include catheters, cutting tools, staplers, hypo tubes and other “surface to surface” assemblies that slide, pivot or twist. Available in numerous concentrations and packages.
Carrier Fluids for Silicones
Non-aqueous, nonflammable carrier fluids for silicones from MicroCare Medical dissolve and carry medical grade silicone lubricants, such as the Dow Corning 360 materials, and deliver performance results like no others. These liquids deposit the medical grade silicones on to medical devices, and improve worker safety without sacrificing performance.
Precision Cleaning Fluids
The Tergo™, Vertrel® and MicroCare critical cleaning fluids deliver uncompromising results consistently, quickly and at the lowest possible cost-per-part. Engineers can rely on the critical cleaning expertise of MicroCare.
Silicone Tube Swelling Fluids
Silicone tube swelling fluids save time and money for companies using silicone tubing. The unique Swellex™ fluids from MicroCare Medical utilize proprietary solvent technology to swell and then soften molded silicone tubing and other thermoelaster materials. This speeds manual assembly, such as when connecting silicone tubing over barbed fittings.
