in a device are eliminated.
pHreeCOAT™ can be applied to virtually any biomaterial or device with no flaking or delamination.
How does pHreeCOAT™ work?
pHreeCOAT™ is a new patent pending anti-encrustation coating in the LubriLAST™ family. It prevents mineral deposition on indwelling medical devices. pHreeCOAT™ can be used in any application where calcification of a device compromises performance, patient comfort or safety. By modulating surface pH and chemistry, pHreeCOAT™ renders the device virtually invisible to the calcification process.
